Simon has collaborative relationships with theatre directors Katie Mitchell, Elen Bowman, Robert Bowman and Jamie Glover. Work with Katie Mitchell includes a staged live film performance of Franz Xaver Kroetz’s Wunschkonzert for Cologne Schauspiel. This production gained a special prize at the Berlin Theatre Festival. Much of his theatre work is an amalgamation of composition and sound design. Where possible, both of these elements are delivered live with a visible contribution to the design aesthetic.
Forthcoming is a return to Cologne Schauspiel in 2012 to develop a performance based on The Rings Of Saturn (WG Sebald).
