Riot Project – group idea

A DENSE BLACK MASS OF HUMAN BEINGS MORE LIKE WILD BEASTS SHRIEKING AND HOWLING

We want to use this quote to inspire our performance. I think I capture the atmosphere of the riot and creates some really strong images. It is also the quote that inspired my initial ideas in the workshop with Tim Hill. I am really interested in how we can create something that has human form with the capability to transform into a wild beast.

Human figure – I love how Gormely created figures from metal, there is a sense of stillness yet they are filled with life.

Possibilities of fabric

I think fabric would be an interesting way to create the transformation into beast, it would create a contrast to the vast mass that we have discussed, and will bring as fluidity and movement that we can use to make our piece perfomative.

Placement With Dorrie Scott

I worked as design assistant for Dorrie Scott on Dr Faustus at Lakeside Arts Theatre.

When I arrived she had already designed most of the set so I helped to make the final model. Researching images, model making and painting the model.

I spent a lot of time researching costume references and drawing elements of costume Dorrie’s drawings.

While with Dorrie, I presented the model and drawing with her to the Production manger, Director and Construction company.

I assisted Dorrie with souring costume, props and elements of set online and at various supplier such as the scrap store and Anchor Supplies.

I returned during production process to help paint the set. I painted all of the wooden aspects of the set along with Dorrie and Clare and Sarah from Nottingham Playhouse.
