Monday 04 March 2019

Over the past 8 years, Shakespeare’s Globe has commissioned Premm to produce the look and feel for the Deutsche Bank sponsored initiative Playing Shakespeare. The Shakespeare productions are created specifically for young people, with 180,000 free tickets given to London school pupils focusing on a different play every time, this year being ‘Romeo and Juliet’.

At one together

Thursday 15 November 2018

Our Theatre is a community based schools programme run by Shakespeare’s Globe. 80 actors from 4 schools in Southwark came together to present a one-hour production of Shakespeare’s ‘As you like it’ inside the Sam Wannamaker Theatre.

What country, friends, is this?

Tuesday 08 March 2016

Premm has been commissioned to work on promotional materials for the Globe Theatre’s Playing Shakespeare production now for 5 consecutive years. Twelfth Night was the chosen play this year for the 2016 performance; and one of Shakespeare’s more tragic comedies focusing on love, loss, identity and the sea. In contrast to last years design for the production of Othello, Twelfth Night’s main concept focused on using photography of one of the cast members. This was an interesting process for us...

In shrinking the (XXL) cycle of four operas – usually around 16 hours long – to one evening, Artistic Director Lynn Binstock set out to ‘create an entertaining, high-quality, low-risk introduction’ to Wagner’s Ring that would ‘reach out to people...

A mindfulness opera

Friday 06 November 2015

Premm had the great pleasure of recently working on the latest production by Mahogany Opera Group, Lost in Thought, the world’s first ‘mindfulness opera’. Based on the classic structure of an extended meditation, it explores the points of contact between sound and silence in music and meditation.  The production has been specially designed for an intimate audience, with the boundaries between performer and audience blurring as you go on an inner journey of mindfulness, with periods of meditation,...
