The Royal Court Theatre

Root was commissioned by The Royal Court Theatre to conceptualise, design and produce a poster campaign that communicated the individual subject matter of each play with interpretative visuals that combined to form a distinctive new look for 2016.

With far-reaching topics including lost generations, a Belfast loyalist with a disturbing conviction and dark conversations in Middle England, our interpretation of Caryl Churchill’s Escaped Alone was a teacup filled with thick, bubbling black tar. 

The result of a shoot art directed by us, with photography from Heiko Prigge and model making by Ollie Hipwell of Howling Hands, was a striking look that was surreal and memorable.
