Christine is from Britain originally and has designed in Wales and London (UK), Sofia (Bulgaria) Brisbane and Melbourne (Australia), Auckland (New Zealand) and is currently in Toronto (Canada.)
She is a perpetual and critical interrogator of what it means to create performance as a visual maker. She is strongly influenced by her differing cultural experiences from her career as a travelling designer and a vivid advocate for Stage Design as an art form and the integration of design in any given process. She uses design as a Brechtian Verfremdungseffekt – as a provocation to the makers and performers of the work, either directly from the piece or an external thesis, using spatial and concept driven investigation.
