We are delighted to be able to announce that EPOC has won funding from the Fenton Arts Trust to enable us to appoint a graduate of the Central Saint Martin’s BA (Hons) Performance Design and Practice course (adjudged by CSM tutors to be excellent at working in the field of opera), to undertake a one-year, part-time, opera & design residency with us.

The successful recipient of this award is Bryony Edwards who will undertake a variety of projects for EPOC and for the ‘POP’ project that EPOC runs in partnership with Central St. Martin’s including:

  • designing EPOC’s ‘Opera Blocks’
  • leading and tutoring design aspects of a project that will open the new theatre at EPOC’s base at Primrose Hill. 
  • acting as student mentor for Central Saint Martin’s students working as part of EPOC’s 2014 ‘POP’ project following a one year (part-time) residency with EPOC and facilitating, with support of CSM and EPOC, placement opportunities between 2nd year CSM students and local schools

Bryony, who grew up in Nottingham, worked on the EPOC Hansel and Gretel at the Platform Theatre, Kings Cross in January 2013. She designed the fourth scene of those performances – a scene that she chose to set in a giant nest peopled with lots of children dressed as baby blackbirds. The nest also contained a giant egg out of which the Witch emerged. She went on to design (with children) an entire version of the piece Hansa and Petal at Primrose Hill Primary School as part of the same project.
