Abstract

This interview with leading British sound designer Donato Wharton focuses mainly on his work with the director Katie Mitchell. Wharton discusses his training and background, his working processes and how these mesh with Mitchell’s approach to directing and the work of other members of her creative teams, and the wider scenographic functions and possibilities of sound. Wharton was educated in Germany and trained in the UK, and the interview discusses some aspects of the British and continental theatre cultures, in both of which he and Mitchell have worked together. There are examples from various productions, both conventional theatre and live cinema, and a discussion of Mitchell’s artistry from the perspective of one of her close collaborators.
