Nate Gibson


Nate has a background in fine and performing arts as a maker, designer, and performer. After studying Interdisciplinary Art at Alfred University in New York, he came to the UK to train in theatre design at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

His work seeks to create sculptural spaces that express the dramatic tensions of a narrative, creating place through abstraction and minimalism, and inviting the audience to engage their imagination.

Nate’s design work for Opera includes Don Giovanni with director Martin Lloyd-Evans (Clonter Opera); The Emperor of Atlantis (a Loud Crowd production at Bold Tendencies); Simplicius Simplicissimus with Polly Graham and Independent Opera (Sadler’s Wells); A Christmas Carol (Welsh National Opera); and The Marriage of Figaro with Stephen Medcalf (Clonter Opera). 

In theatre, Nate has worked extensively at LAMDA, with most recent productions being Clybourne Park, A Few Good Men, The Wolves, and Pomona.

Previously for Longborough: Anna Bolena (2019), L’incoronazione di Poppea (2018)
