She has also designed for Nottingham Playhouse, Lyric Theatre, Belfast, Bolton Octagon, Sherman Cymru and a variety of touring companies throughout the UK.

Fiona also develops commissioned projects as a lead artist and curator. This has included two international projects for the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design & Space (PQ 2011 and 2015), and Design as Performance at World Stage Design in Cardiff (WSD 2013). Between 2009 and 2011 Fiona created and developed Creativite Sans Frontieres (CWB 2010), a cross-border community performance project via the Interreg EU funding programme. In 2012 she became a member of the core team delivering Open Stages, a Cultural Olympiad project for the Royal Shakespeare Company. At the heart of this aspect of her practice is an open-minded pedagogical approach which enables emerging practitioners, students and communities to make design-led performance, exploring creative development through placing work in an international context.

Fiona is UK Performance Design Commissioner for OISTAT (International Organisation of Scenographers, Theatre Architects and Technicians) and Honorary Secretary of the Society of British Theatre Designers, an organisation which celebrates and supports the work of designers for performance based in the UK.
