Alice Sales

MA Performance Design Student


Alice is a Bristol based theatre designer working across both set and costume design. She has a particular interest in site specific and devised work and is passionate about creating theatre to green book principles.

As well as designing for BOVTS productions, she used her MA year to devise an immersive project for National Trust gardens in collaboration with writer Nicole Darvill-Batten, inspired by the non-native plants that make up many traditional English gardens.

Prior to studying at BOVTS she received her BA from London College of Fashion (2018), and then became Head of Visual Merchandising for vintage retailer Beyond Retro. She decided a change in career was due after undertaking a short course in scenic construction at RADA and a design masterclass with theatre company Punchdrunk.

BOVTS credits include set design for Emilia directed by Sally Cookson (Circomedia), set and costume for Out of Love directed by Lydia Mckinnley (Wardrobe Theatre).

One of my favourite parts about BOVTS is that it feels ‘homegrown’. From the set to the costume, lighting, acting and sound, every single aspect of a theatre production or film is down to the students. The location of Clifton is so serene and the School being so small everyone knows each other and it feels so personal and special. Violet Morris, BA Professional Acting Student
