Hazel Low is a performance designer and theatre maker based in London.
Hazel's practice is multidisciplinary, and they value collaboration above all else. They are interested in creating work that challenges an audience's expectations, and design that is intrinsically linked to the performers on stage. As a queer and gender non conforming person, Hazel is passionate about creating work that centres around these themes, and raising awareness of other marginalised voices. They are interested in assemblage and breaking forms, as well as image making through objects on stage. Hazel is also looking for opportunities to forge new connections with experimental directors, choreographers and live artists.
As well as designing performance, Hazel has also worked on design for temporary spaces. Recently they were Associate Designer on transforming an office block into the revolutionary rehearsal complex NDT BROADGATE, and designed the Royal Court Theatre's pop up bar COURT IN THE SQUARE.
