Jeremy Herbert is an international multimedia artist and stage designer. He trained under British theatre designer Margaret Harris on the Motley Theatre Design Course (London).

He designed many new plays for the Royal Court Theatre. These included first productions of Sarah Kane’s Cleansed and 4.48 Psychosis (Barclays Award for Best Design); as well as Tom Murphy’s Alice Trilogy; The Lights (staged in the gutted theatre prior to its refurbishment); Caryl Churchill’s version of Thyestes; and The Ugly One by Marius von Mayenburg. He used a NESTA Award to design and develop giant (silent) wind machines that became central to his design for Britten’s Death in Venice (Hamburg Staatsoper/Theater an der Wien). Elsewhere, he has designed new operas for both Michael Nyman (Man & Boy DADA) and John Tavener (Mary of Egypt). He has worked for the RSC (The Tempest, Roberto Zucco); in the West End (This is Our Youth, Sexual Perversity in Chicago); with Madonna (Up For Grabs); and with Artangel ( Imber – Salisbury Plain).

Herbert’s most recent projects include Hamlet, The Glass Menagerie, and Blackta (Young Vic); Betrayal (Comedy); La traviata (Wiener Festwochen); Paradise, a site-specific performance/installation for the Ruhrtriennale; Harper Regan by Simon Stephens (Hamburg Schauspielhaus, Salzburg Festival); and Parlour Song by Jez Butterworth (Almeida).
