MA Scenic Art

Rowan Batoctoy is an award-winning graduate of Fine Art from Manchester School of Art, and is a current student of MA Scenic Art at BOVTS.

Rowan spent the first years of her life in the Philippines surrounded by makers of props and sets for theatre and film. Inspired by the people and the work from her youth, she decided to pursue scenic art. Rowan has spent the last few years gaining relevant experience through events, courses, and work placements, before finally coming to study as a student at BOVTS, where she has grown as a scenic artist.

Rowan’s credits include Scenic Artist for the BOVTS productions of Hedda (Bristol Old Vic Theatre), Far from the Madding Crowd (The Redgrave Theatre), Troilus and Cressida (The Redgrave Theatre), Absolute Scenes (The Marble Factory) and as Supervising Scenic for The Three Seagulls (Bristol Old Vic).
