Lizzie joined the MA Performance Designs students for a project, to design costumes for the opera Akhenaten by Phillip Glass, alongside Ping Clarke-ng, who was set and projection designer. The project was directed by Adele Thomas. Lizzie created bold and exciting designs, aiming to retain the Ancient Egyptian influences, but also evoke Afrofuturism, ideas of gender, quantum physics and religion and rituals.
