Erik Flatmo is a West Coast-based scenic designer who works in theater, opera, and dance. His designs have been seen on the stages of the American Conservatory Theater, the Asolo Repertory Theatre, the Berkeley Repertory Theatre, the San Jose Repertory Theatre, the South Coast Repertory, the Yale Repertory Theatre, Opera Santa Barbara, and the San Francisco Opera, among others.
Flatmo has designed scenery for the original productions of many new American plays, resulting in close relationships with several companies solely devoted to the presentation of new plays: Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, the Play Company, Summer Playwrights Festival (SPF), and the Magic Theater.
Flatmo's work with the choreographer Trajal Harrell has debuted in New York at venues such as the Kitchen, Danspace Project, and Dance Theatre Workshop, in addition to international presentations in Poland, France, Germany, and Mexico. Their most recent collaboration, Antigone Sr., premiered in March 2012 at Dansens Hus in Stockholm and at New York Live Arts in April.
Flatmo will be designing the upcoming production of A Streetcar Named Desire at A.C.T. in San Francisco. He is a graduate of Columbia University and the Yale School of Drama. He teaches set design at Stanford University.
