Insight


We are collective of stage professionals who seek to move, engage and tell stories in every production we design and or event that we conceive.


In our team of stage creatives are trained storytellers with acute awareness of the power of the emotional connection that happens between the stage and the audience.

Experience in set and film designs is particularly important in current times when events are filmed to be shared in social media and television. One needs to know how best to design for these mediums.

Here we share some of our stage and screen productions illustrating our stage experience.

“Expertly set by designer Francisco Rodriguez-Weil… Christopher Denys’s production was visually as good as it was dramatically.”

 

“… All the cast, in fact, deliver the goods – as does the set which, on opening night, got an ovation before anyone uttered a word.”

Tom Phillips-Venue

 

“Francisco Rodriguez-Weil’s brilliantly conceived and evocative set design”

Paul Vale, The Stage


With gorgeous, contrast heavy black and white and some solid costume work really helping to embed the viewer in both the era and the type of cinema this narrative is directly influenced by, the camera is a loving one, and yet one that does help add an ounce or two more emotional gravitas to the picture.”

Joshua Brunsting, ACV July 31st 2015

 

“The set consisting of books and a laptop is inventive; the costumes of the nine members ensemble, who play all the supporting roles, are a feast for the eye”

Maaike Staffhorst, De Telegraaf

 

“SOHO has never looked better than it does in this colourful, exuberant National Youth Theatre production. A cast of gorgeous young people, many eye-poppingly dressed, sing, dance, dream and fall in love on the streets of London’s chicest red-light district.


“Good as the signing was, this Ravel double bill was a triumph for the producer Stefan Janski and the designer Francisco Rodriguez-Weil (…). One would be very fortunate to find a more beautiful set for L’Enfant anywhere care to name"

Michael Kennedy. Opera

 

“Francisco Rodriguez-Weil’s set was successful in evoking the spooky twists of the plot by means of a mirrored ceiling in which the weird distortions of the action below were reflected”

Michael Kennedy. Opera Magazine

 

“Designer Francisco Rodriguez-Weil has come up with an ingenious set in which (at the end) a tree is smashed by lightning and a chasm opens”

Robert Beale. City Life


“Francisco Rodriguez-Weil’s set and costume designs, and Emma Chapman’s atmospheric lighting, won applause at the outset of both acts two and four on the opening night”

Robert Beale. City Life.

 

“Set, costumes and design are exceptionally beautiful. Alice falls through the screen of a gigantic laptop (a recurring, inventive eye-catcher in the set) and characters step literally out of a big picture book.”

Hans Kottmann, Het Noordhollands Dagblad

 

“It is brilliantly and imaginatively staged by designer Francisco Rodriguez-Weil, with a room enlarged as if from a child’s eye view, which eventually opens up to become a starlit forest. The costumes, colorful and witty, add significantly to the visual delight, as all the things the naughty boy has damaged in his tantrums come alive to teach him a lesson (…) Magical and fantastic”.

Manchester Evening News, Philip Radcliffe
