Eamon D'Arcy

Theatrical Managers

Eamon is a theatre and event designer, trained at the Motley School in London, NIDA and the University of Sydney, where he holds a Master of Philosophy in Art History and Theory. Eamon is presently completing a PhD in Scenography at the Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building, University of Technology, Sydney.

He combines contemporary thinking, art and design in his work. His process is based on the movement 'from the inside out' meaning that both narrative and space shape theatrical performance. His work ranges from the art installation group Scenario Urbano through to large scale events such as his role as Acting Director of Design for the Opening Ceremony Winter Olympics, in Vancouver.

One of his recent projects, as Production Designer for the musical Hairspray (directed by David Atkins), attempted to re-define music theatre using LED technologies and animation. The show received two nominations for Best Set Design from the Greenroom Awards and the Sydney Theatre Critics Awards, with a 'Highly Commended' citation from the Australian Production Design Guild.

In 2012 Eamon designed the Indigenous Opera Yarrabah the Musical for Opera Australia, written and directed by Rhoda Roberts, and performed out of doors in Yarrabah, an Aboriginal community 40kms south of Cairns.  In 2013 he was Site Designer for Opera Australia's Handa Opera on the Harbour, Carmen, and Set Designer for David Atkins' Hot Shoe Shuffle - A Tap Musical which toured Australia. From 2014 to 2015 Eamon was Site Designer for Opera Australia's Handa Opera on the Harbour, Madama Butterfly and Aida, and is currently Production Designer for Tamanian Theatre Company's Antarctica.
