Joanna Scotcher received the Whatsonstage ‘Best Set Designer’ Award for her site specific design of The Railway Children, which went on to win the Olivier award for Best Entertainment in 2011.

Joanna completed her design training with the Royal Shakespeare Company. From this classical initiation in stage design, her design projects have taken her from sets for fashion, performances on lakes, journeys through tunnels, games in royal palaces and live television broadcasts. As well as the theatrical stage, her work specialises in the world of immersive performance and site responsive design, inhabiting spaces from the epic to the intimate.

Her design work has been exhibited at the V&A Museum's 'From Gaga to Gormley' exhibition and installations commissioned by places such as Kensington Palace and Covent Garden. Recent work includes PESTS by Vivien Franzmann for Clean Break & The Royal Court, ANTIGONE by Roy Williams for Pilot Theatre & A HARLEM DREAM for Young Vic & Dance Umbrella.

Joanna recently designed the 'CAPTURING THE FLAME' CEREMONY for the inaugural European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Most recent work includes: ANNA KARENINA and THE ROLLING STONE for Royal Exchange, Manchester and West Yorkshire Playhouse and THE RAILWAY CHILDREN at King's Cross Station
