“More central are William Simpson’s stunning back-projection effects; none more so than a pair of kite-like drawn curtains that changed kaleidoscopically with each unveiling. A palisade metamorphoses into Golden Gates and skyscrapers; such beautiful lepidopteran economy saying more than a hundred set changes.”

Piano Circus performance, Kings Place


“..combined with William Simpson’s back projections, work to create a seamless transition of sense of place which I’ve experienced only very rarely and succeeded on the Playhouse’s large stage. Cue the silent swish of virtual Arabesque curtains followed by a Frisco skyline at night, it was all quite magical.”
