Es Devlin

Biography

Es Devlin is a stage designer. She creates kinetic sculptures meshed with light and film for opera, dance, film, theatre, runway shows and concerts.

 

Her first works were for small fringe theatres in London including the Bush and the Gate. Her canvas has expanded over the past two decades - through the National Theatre, Sadlers Wells, Royal Opera House, La Scala, and onto the O2 Arena, Wembley Stadium, and the Olympic Stadiums in London and Rio.

 

She has created stage sets in collaboration with Beyoncé, Kanye West, U2, Jay Z, Adele and The Weeknd. She designed the London Olympic Closing Ceremony and the Rio Olympic Opening Ceremony and continues to work in theatre at all scales - most recently 'Hamlet' with Benedict Cumberbatch at the Barbican and 'Faith Healer' at the Donmar Warehouse.

 

Es' work has received multiple awards including 3 Olivier Awards, Evening Standard, Critics' Circle and an OBE.
