THE DONMAR’S STRIKING CREATIVE

The AKA Creative Studio have been working hard over the summer, producing stunning conceptual artwork for Donmar Warehouse’s Autumn Season.

The team were tasked with creating imagery for David Harrower’s intense and haunting fable, Knives In Hens. Working with the play’s multi award-winning director Yael Farber and fashion photographer Dan Kennedy, the team captured an arresting and confrontational shot of lead actor Judith Roddy, which perfectly reflects the mood of the production.

Dan Kennedy also worked with the Creative Studio to deliver bold concepts for Kwame Kwei-Armah’s Caribbean re-imagining of Ibsen’s The Lady From The Sea. The vibrant backdrop of colour set against the sombre central figure of lead actor Nikki Amuka-Bird makes for a beautifully powerful image that creates real cut-through.
