The richly colored, minutely detailed visuals — designed by Mr. Harrison and Rebecca Hamilton and beautifully lit by Simon Wilkinson — are the wonder of “Flight.”
Laura Collins-Hughes, New York Times, Critics Pick
this production’s exquisite detail, which enables it to capture even the different textures of the light in Greece and Italy
Michael Billington, The Guardian
Flight is a technical triumph, and I can only imagine the weeks of work that have gone into carefully crafting the lighting design, which must consist of hundreds of tiny lights and illuminates each miniature scene with the same precision as in a full-scale theatre piece.
Ashling Findlay-Carroll, Across the Arts
The dioramas are lit like movie sets by Simon Wilkinson
Flight is extraordinary ... gorgeously lit
Susannah Clap, The Observer
unforgettable in both content and form, a devastating concatenation of dreams and nightmares on the run.
Simon Wilkinson's radiant lighting is totally gorgeous throughout
Holly Williams, Whatsonstage
delivered with remarkable attention to detail, with each constructed frame a work of art in itself, playing with perspective and close-ups as a film might do
Neil Cooper, The Herald
The tableaux, are imaginatively wrought, and Simon Wilkinson's lighting, using the tiniest of instruments, is pleasingly precise.
David Barbour, Lighting and Sound America
Any great graphic novel will make use of space, perspective, lighting and shadow. Flight does all these things and the style is majestic and fanciful.
Steven Fraser, The Wee Review
The visuals are striking ... Simon Wilkinson brings a thoughtful full-scale lighting design to many miniature sets.
