Press and Reviews

"and every producer going should snap up Arnim Friess, whose startlingly expressionistic lighting design perfectly captures the mid-'90s spirit of Walker and Lye-Fooks retro piece."

*** TimeOut on Klook's Last Stand ***

 

"Arnim Friess' digital projection and live action are combined to quite brilliant effect ... triumphantly proves that they can be equal partners."

*** Lyn Gardner, The Guardian, Pilot Theatre 'Rumblefish' ***

 

"Good lighting designed by Arnim Friess helps create the right atmosphere"

*** thepublicviews.com" on 'Alice in Wonderland' ***

 

"Paul Kerryson has delivered another well-crafted piece of theatre ... with effective use of brick-work, cobbles and excellent lighting from Arnim Friess."

*** Leicester Courier on 'Piaf' ***
