I was employed by the National Theatre to graffiti the caterpillar for a musical called wonder.land with set design by Rae Smith and music by Damon Albarn. A new musical inspired by Lewis Carroll’s iconic story, wonder.land is a coming-of-age adventure that explores the blurred boundaries between our online and offline lives. My design on the costume was praised by Michael Billington in his Guardian review where he said “…the most eye-catching [costume] is that of the caterpillar, with its unending train of green globules.”
The play is showing at the Olivier Theatre and tickets are available from the National Theatre website

Aly is struggling with all the pressures of being a teenager: family, school, friends and her own insecurities. Then she discovers wonder.land – a mysterious online world where, perhaps, she can create a whole new life. The web becomes her looking-glass – but will Aly see who she really is?
Combining live theatre and digital technology in dazzling new ways, wonder.land is brought to life on stage by an extraordinary creative team. With stunning sets, costumes, video projection and lighting, and a score by Blur’s Damon Albarn, this is a musical like no other: an Alice for the online generation.
