SIMON BOCCANEGRA NCPA

This is one of the scenes that I designed for the 80th Birthday of Placido Domingo. 

The production was to be in NCPA Beijing in August 2015. 

OTHELLO - Fort Canning Park SINGAPORE

This is my design for OTHELLO. It is to be performed in the outside auditorium at Fort Canning Park in Singapore from March and yes we do have a helicopter arriving to bring in the troops!

BABY DOLL / TIGER TAIL Nuffield Theatre

BABY DOLL / TIGER TAIL  September 2012

Tennesseee Williams wrote the play Tiger Tail twenty years after his 1956 film (on the same subject) - Baby Doll.

The house facade is painted gauze/scrim. With a change of lighting the interior rooms can be revealed. (Note the light filtering through the upstage windows) Sparkling water gushed from the pump on the left in comparison to the old decaying Pierce Arrow limo on the right.

TWELFTH NIGHT Singapore Repertory Theatre

Although the ground looks quite flat in the photo my design has a steep rake (1 in 5) up to the shoreline. The seascape requires three projectors to complete the expansive moving image. Sometimes stormy, sometimes calm and sometimes moonlit . Bruce Guthrie: director. Rick Fisher: lighting design. Sound design: Mike Walker. Composer: Ruth Ling and Projection Designer: Andrzej Goulding. Construction: Marc Andre Therrien. Photo: Marcus Tozini.

GOLDFISH DEATHS REMAIN A MYSTERY

Arrived back from Edinburgh to find all the goldfish - some over 25 yrs old - had mysteriously died. It's quite sad really as it was amazing how friendly they had become. Note the size - almost 30 cms long! Possible suggestions of cause of death welcomed.

 

 

RING OF SUCCESS IN EDINBURGH

Just back from designing a very successful production at the Edinburgh Festival entitled "Tuesdays at Tesco's" by Emmanuel Darley performed at the Assembly Hall on the Mound.

It was the British Premiere and the first UK-adaption of the French sensation LE MARDI A MONOPRIX, the Moliere-award nominated play about Love, life and death among the shopping trolleys. Simon Stokes directs.

A one 'man' show with the legendary Simon Callow as you have never seen him before starring as Pauline: a loving daughter, carer and transsexual. - Methinks we'll see more of this one soon.
