Rhiannon Binnington

MA Performance Design Student


Rhiannon specialises in set and costume design for theatre, with particular skill in model making and costume illustration, and a focus on in-depth research, and cross-company collaboration to inform her designs.  As a result, Rhiannon produces designs for performance that are thoroughly considered and researched, richly detailed and wildly creative.

Rhiannon is especially interested in horror and the gothic, as well as immersive, interactive and site specific and responsive theatre. She takes particular interest in the role and function of Story Telling in theatre and beyond.

Outside of academic training, Rhiannon has also worked as a carpentry and scenic paint workshop hand at Belgrade Production Services in Coventry. Prior to her training at BOVTS, Rhiannon received a BA Hons from Arts University Bournemouth in Performance Design (Scenography).


The culture at BOVTS is encouraging, respectful, welcoming and empowering; the environment and buildings are beautiful and I found Bristol to be one of the most wonderful cities in which to spend summer! Lindy Yeates, Foundation Course Student
