Set Design for the Elysium scene for a children's Promenade production of Orpheus & Eurydice. Stacks of translucent circles knotted onto ropes gradually rose as the children emerged from the theatres pit (Hades), to tower 7 metres above them and after Orpheus looks back and Eurydice's ghost dies once more, Elysium collapses around him.
