I have three very exciting design projects going on at the moment between now and early September. Due to some personal circumstances, I’m not able to take on any more design work after September this year, for a while - so I’m hoping to make the most of these lovely projects.
The first one which is coming up fast is 4Larks’ new production, Undine, an adaptation based on the same myth that The Little Mermaid was based around. I have been working with Tom Willis as co-designer and it has been an excellent collaboration so far. It’s looking beautiful.
The project following Undine is called Medea of Baghdad and is directed by Tanja Beer, who I worked with on the last Union House Theatre production. It is a strong one-woman script and should be a wonderful collaboration (and my first show where I am officially part of the set design team!).
Immediately after Medea is Union House Theatre’s 2nd semester show - Memmie le Blanc by Hillary Bell. I posted a bit about this project yesterday, and the inspiration behind the design. As usual, the production and design teams at Union House are lovely and brilliant and an absolute joy to work with.
And how much does the Memmie le Blanc poster look like a Brooke Shaden picture (see previous Tumblr post)? This was a total coincidence - I told Tom Gutteridge that I had discovered Brooke’s work and wanted to pursue her style in the lighting design, and then he sent me the poster!
