Mia Yip-Breen 

BA [Hons] Production Design

I’ve had a deep interest and love for the arts since a very young age and have a performative background in both display gymnastics and dance. I'm super excited to work in the industry now with a better understanding of the physical spaces around us and the knowledge I've gained in IADT.

The Night Circus

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, set in the late 1800's to the early 1900's, follows the two protagonists, Celia and Marco, through an old rivalry that places them in a competition between old and new magic that's destined to end in a battle to the death.

The story follows the characters along with the travelling black and white circus 'Le Cirque des Rêves' where Celia is an illusionist and Marco who is the owners assistant aswell as having powers himself.

I chose to focus on designing both Celia and Marco's personal spaces. For Celia that was her tent in the circus: Feats of Illustrious Illusion, and her backstage suite. For Marco I chose the study in his apartment where he spent most of his time.
