This year’s overall winner of the Linbury Prize is Sami Fendall, who will be designing a newly commissioned dance work as part of Ballet Now for Birmingham Royal Ballet.

Also announced were three other winners Zoe Hurwitz designing ACID for Nuffield Southampton Theatres, Rose Revitt designing Dr Korczak’s Example for Leeds Playhouse and TK Hay designing An Adventure for Octagon Theatre Bolton.

2019 marks 30 years since the Linbury Prize was first held at the National Theatre. The first exhibition for emerging designers took place in 1987 at the Theatre Museum, arranged by Anya Sainsbury. In 1989 the first Linbury Biennial Prize for Stage Design was held at the NT and the Prize is still held here today.  Over the 30 years, more than 1,200 young designers have entered the Linbury Prize for Stage Design.

 

The Linbury Prize for Stage Design Exhibition opens from Tuesday 3 December in the Lyttelton Lounge at the National Theatre.

The exhibition includes stage designs, model boxes and costume drawings for four new UK based productions by 12 stage young designers who have worked with the directors or choreographers of the commissioning companies: Birmingham Royal Ballet, Leeds Playhouse, Nuffield Southampton Theatres and Octagon Theatre Bolton. 

The exhibition is free to enter and open from Monday - Saturday during opening hours.
