Press

Bondagers (Royal Lyceum Edinburgh)

Kemp harnesses  the earthy lyricism of the writing to create a deeply moving, richly textured piece of theatre that gains great power from Jamie Vartan's impressionistic set of wood, soil and smoke.

The Times

If you can, see this remarkable play in this very fine production.

***** The Edinburgh Guide

 

This sense of space distinguishes Lu Kemp's painterly staging...From the moment the cast appear in silhouette at the back of Jamie Vartan's elemental set, Kemp treats the stage like it had the full dimensions of a field.

**** The Guardian

 

Ballyturk (Black Box Theatre)

allyturk, a place that may or may not exist, still seems strangely familiar.  We are in a huge sealed room, a sparse industrial space of light greys and rust browns, designed by Jamie Vartan.

Irish Times

 

I gioiella della Madonna (Opera Holland Park)

Jamie Vartan’s sets and costumes conjure up a credibly louche vision of period Neapolitan low life.

The Guardian

Cristina, Regina di Svezia (Wexford Festival Opera)

2014 International Opera Award - Best Re-discovered Opera
