Bethany Wells

Architectural designer

A performance designer working across dance, theatre and installation, with particular interest in site-specific and devised performance. Trained in architecture, my starting point is always to explore how space communicates through time in performance. I see design as a form of activism; I am interested in exploring what can be achieved politically and socially by the collective live experience of performance.


I am an Associate Artist with Middle Child Theatre, Hull.


An ongoing project WARMTH is a wood-fired mobile sauna and performance space, commissioned by Compass Live Art and touring nationally WARMTH warmthsauna.co.uk.


I trust in the power of collaborative process to open up space + time to new possible realities. I trust the power of performance to move, shape and question our individual + collective experiences.


Nominated, BEST SET DESIGN for TRUST, Off West End Awards [2018]
Awarded, 110 Anniversary Scholarship, University of Leeds [2014]
