Bex Anson is an emerging freelance director and scenographer based in Glasgow.
Working with multi-disciplinary artists and independent organisations, she creates immersive performances through collective synergy, experiential environments and transgressive theatre.

(2006-2010) and curated over 30 exhibitions. A founding member of ‘genre bending’ arts collective 85A
(2008-present), she works with 12 other artists focussing on the performative elements of their shows.
Bex is currently the scenographer for Glasgow based contemporary dance company V/DA
as well as an associate artist with Brighton’s Feral Theatre
with whom she trained in ‘Rites of Passage’ under Gilly Adams and Sue Fox
[Welfare State International].
Since 2007 Bex has worked in a variety of roles with Bassline Circus -for the last 2 years as costume designer and scenographer- and now as director for ‘Athletes Of The Night’ 2015 festival shows.
