A Christmas Carol
Set and Costume Designer
The Bridge House Theatre SE20
This was a version of the Dickens classic which really focussed on transforming the whole space into an intimate, atmospheric storytelling environment through music, puppetry and intricately choreographed interaction with set, props and costume. It very much became a world where the small cast of 4 could switch between characters and locations both imaginatively and poetically. A true collaboration between the director, cast and designer. This was a production where I was very hands on throughout the rehearsal process, specifically through the practise of puppetry.
