The Australia Council mourns the passing of production designer Kristian Fredrikson.
Mr Fredrikson was one of Australia’s most creative and prolific designers for stage and screen.
He worked on outstanding productions with Sydney Dance Company, Australian Ballet and Opera Australia, on the Sydney 2000 Olympics, and in film and television. Mr Fredrikson’s talents were honoured by a host of awards, most recently a Helpmann Award and Green Room Award in 2003 for his work on The Australian Ballet’s production of Swan Lake.
His prodigious creative output continued until his recent passing, at which time he had been working on three separate productions.
