The Beggars Opera, 2009

Birgitte Moos is a Danish Artist based in Copenhagen and Los Angeles. She is a Scenographer and Visual artist and has, in Denmark and internationally, been involved in a series of projects in theater, short films, videos, gallery exhibitions and performances.

In the spring 2010, she did scenography for the staging of The Arsonists, with American premiere, at The Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles. The show is nominated with The Critics Choice by LA Times.

In the autumn 2009 she held an artist in residency with Director Robert Wilson in New York. That stay was part of a research in experimental, interdisciplinary scenography.

She is interested in what lies beneath the surface in order to create captivating visual universes.
