Rob has lit plays, musicals, dance, restaurants, airports, weddings, buildings and much, much more over a career that now spans almost three decades.
His recent work includes the acclaimed Tree of Codes, a collaboration with director/choreographer Wayne McGregor, visual artist Olafur Eliasson and composer Jamie xx, which debuted at the 2015 Manchester International Festival and which has this year been seen in Paris, London and Aarhus. The show will be back later in the year as part of the 2017 Melbourne Festival.
In the West End, his work has included the musical Daddy Cool, also seen in Berlin. In New York, his work has included The Wizard of Oz which performed at Madison Square Gardens after a successful US tour.
He has enjoyed ongoing collaborations with a number of organisations and directors, particularly Curve in Leicester (where he has lit Hello Dolly, Buried Child, Sweeney Todd, Oliver! and West Side Story), and the Royal Academy of Music in London, whose musicals he has lit most years since 2001.
His aim is always to use light to help tell the story of the show, to support the performers in creating the world of the show, and to take the audience on the journey of that show.
