Scenographer, costume designer, Kuopio, www

I studied theatre design at London’s Rose Bruford College and set design at the Aalto University of Art and Design in Helsinki. Since 2016 I have worked as the resident scenographer at the Kuopio City Theatre. Before moving to Kuopio I worked for four years as the resident scenographer at the Joensuu City Theatre. During my career I have worked as a freelance theatre designer at the Rauma City Theatre and at numerous fringe theatre companies both in Finland and the UK. I have also been involved in the founding of two theatre companies and worked on communal art projects in multidisciplinary ways to create new practices of performance. Along the years I have worked within almost all disciplines of theatre making.

As a designer I have worked in both director lead and collective working processes in theatre productions ranging from the contemporary to the traditional. In most productions I have worked as both set and costume designer. In my design process I focus especially on the rythm of the performance, the movement, the light and the balance between the different elements of theatre making.

Some of my work in the last few years include productions Tankkien kesä (set and costume design 2020), Cabaret (set design 2019), The House of Bernarda Alba (set design 2019) and Frida (set and costume design 2016) at the Kuopio City Theatre. More pictures of my theatre design work can be found at www.marieantikainen.com.
