Paul recently designed Something Else for Deafinitely Theatre, which opened at Stratford Circus in March before touring.

He also had work in Make/Believe, the national theatre design exhibition organised by the Society of British Theatre Designers. This was on at Nottingham Trent in January. This featured  some of the costumes he designed for Deafinitely Theatre's A Midsummer Night's Dream at Shakespeare's Globe, and the set of Hard Places, which toured India in 2012. He also curated a smaller version of the exhibition, featuring dance-related work, for the Gibberd Gallery in Harlow.

Last year, he designed Alex Swift's Travesty, which had an R&D showing at Ovalhouse in June and opened at The Theatre in the Mill, Bradford  in October. It will be in London soon. Another ongoing project is Kenny Baraka's The Green Man, which had a pilot production at the Southbank roof garden in October and will be developed further this year.

He has recently finished working as a freelance producer (maternity leave) for Apples and Snakes, giving him a chance to organise and support lots of exciting spoken word projects and events, including a programme of events for SPOKE, a commission for Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Alongside this he is developing a series of multi-disciplinary collaborations with different community and professional groups for Daedalus Theatre Company, including the storytelling project East, which was part of A Season in Bangla Drama in Tower Hamlet, and The Radical History Project, a collaboration with The Black Smock Band which was part of the Fun Palace weekend at Ovalhouse.
