February 2018, The boy, the piano and the beach, by slot machine theatre
I am working with Slot Machine Theatre on a new show called 'The Boy, The Piano and the Beach'. It's all about getting kids engaged with classical music, and it will premier at the 2018 brighton festival.
Slot machine have been noted by the observer newspaper for their “dazzling inventiveness... inspired theatre”.
i have been working on the character design for the boy, this design is being translated into a puppet, I'm also assisting in designing the overall look of the show in terms of mood, colour, lighting and textures. in addition i will be creating a storyboard booklet of the show, which will be available at the performances.
‘Magical—an ideal introduction to the theatre for children' The Stage
With the tide coming in fast, the Boy on the beach hears an unearthly sound that draws him on an extraordinary adventure into the blue. Featuring music by Ravel, Debussy, Prokofiev, and performed live by pianist Edward Liddall, this beguiling blend of puppetry, dance and projection is a wordless visual treat focusing on the piano as you’ve never seen it before.
