Becky-Dee Trevenen is British-Australian Theatre Designer with experience spanning many forms of live performance, with a particular focus on physical theatre and interactive design. Working on an international scale, her work ranges from intimate one-on-one experiences, to sprawling multi-warehouse installations.
Becky-Dee designs striking worlds, often in non-traditional spaces, which encourage the audience to re-think the connection between design, performer and the audience. Within these worlds, she uses both tangible objects and raw materials to hold the emotional landscape and subvert the physical vocabulary of the performer in order to reveal a surprising and honest expression. She believes the multi-modal potential of design in live context can be harnessed as a means to address the climate emergency and explore the ongoing development of Artificial Intelligence.
For Tangled Feet she designed dynamic, sculptural set-pieces for Butterflies (Half Moon, UK Tour) and Half Life (The Albany, Gulbenkian, Arc). For Migration Museum, she was commissioned to create two interactive installations for their 2020 exhibition Departures; And for Kings Head Theatre designed the West End transfer of Strangers In Between, The Offie-winning production of Tosca and the Olivier-nominated production of La Boheme.
She frequently works with immersive theatre pioneers Punchdrunk and Punchdrunk Enrichment, most recently, as the Head of Set Dressing on The Burnt City and is currently a Designer Mentor and Workshop Leader for Punchdrunk Enrichment.
Becky-Dee also has experience working in hybrid film/tv and theatre projects, as the Design Coordinator on the BAFTA-nominated theatrical broadcast The Third Day: Autumn (Sky Arts, HBO, Punchdrunk) and as Art Director for the BBC Cbeebies productions of Romeo and Juliet, The Night Before Christmas and Dick Whittington.
Becky-Dee completed a Bachelor of Dramatic Art at NIDA in Sydney, Australia in 2014 where she was awarded the William Fletcher Foundation Award and was the Big Brother Movement Drama Scholar in 2015.
