Blanca Añón is a freelance designer of spaces for performance. She arrived at set design from a background of fine arts, installation and video art.  Before becoming a designer, she studied fine arts at Universitat Politècnica de València (Spain) and at Hochshule für Bildende Künste in Hamburg (Germany) graduating in 2007.

Comfortable working in different kinds of performance, from opera to plays, to film and works that eschews these categories. Her work and process are defined by an intense curiosity matched with a shrewd visual sensibility. She views the theatre less as entertainment or a job, and more as a forum in which to learn about the world, to ask big questions and challenge assumptions.
