Artist and creative director Tal Rosner combines multiple layers of sound and visuals to create video installations and live performances. The scope of his output covers a uniquely wide spectrum: from world leading orchestras such as the New York Philharmonic, via rock legends Rolling Stones to London’s V&A Museum, the Commonwealth Games and fashion houses Telfar and Marni. His musical eye has earned him a spotlight on the international stage for video design, as well as critical acclaim for his distinctive approach to rhythm and color.

In 2021 Rosner conceived MYTHOS for Staatsoper Hannover, an entire evening dedicated to Sibelius’ tone poems, incorporating video and lighting design. The show was performed live and streamed globally. In 2020 he created a new video interpretation of Scriabin's Prometheus, The Poem of Fire, commissioned by Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra to mark their 125th Anniversary.

Other musical highlights include installations for Steve Reich's Tehillim (Psalms), commissioned by the Barbican Centre (2017); for Olga Neuwirth's Disenchanted Island, commissioned by IRCAM and Centre Pompidou (2017); and for Lament, a co-creation with composer Christopher Mayo, commissioned by Nuit Blanche Toronto (2018).

Previous large-scale orchestral work include Esa-Pekka Salonen's Foreign Bodies (2018), commissioned by the New York Philharmonic; Britten's Four Sea Interludes and Passacaglia (2013-16), commissioned by the New World Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, and BBC Symphony Orchestra; and In Seven Days (Piano Concerto with Moving Image), a collaboration with Thomas Adès, commissioned by the Southbank Centre and the Los Angeles Philharmonic (2008) and later performed with the New York Philharmonic, Tonhalle Zürich and Cologne Philharmonie.

Most recently, Rosner has been announced as video designer for The Hunger Games: On Stage (directed by Matthew Dunster), which will take place in autumn 2024. In 2022, he designed the video for both the opening and closing ceremonies of the XXII Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, and for Ainadamar (directed by Deborah Colker) for Scottish Opera, Detroit Opera, the Metropolitan Opera and Welsh National Opera. He is currently working on the video element for The Minority Report (directed by Max Webster) for Nottingham Playhouse, Birmingham Rep and Lyric Hammersmith (2024).

In 2019 he originated a brand new adaptation of Astrid Lingren's Brothers Lionheart for the Royal Danish Playhouse in Copenhagen, which returned for further runs in 2022 and 2023, and commissioned to design and co-direct a new production of Die Walküre for Opéra National de Bordeaux, in collaboration with Julia Burbach.

Rosner co-designed Shopping and F'ing with long-term collaborator Jon Bausor for the Lyric Hammersmith (2016), and co-created 8 Minutes (2017), an hour-long multimedia dance piece, with choreographer Alexander Whitley and composer Daniel Wohl, for Sadler's Wells.

Additional theater and dance credits include Next to Normal at the Donmar Warehouse; Everyman and Husbands and Sons at the National Theatre; You For Me For You and X, The Glow at the Royal Court; The Most Incredible Thing (Pet Shop Boys) for Charlotte Ballet, North Carolina; and Les Enfants Terribles (Philip Glass) at the Royal Ballet.
