D-DAY 75

Set & Costume Designer 

An immersive, site-specific experience following Eisenhower and the 101st Airborne Division in the days leading up to D-Day and the beginning of the end of WW2.  D-Day 75 was staged in the 101 OutdoorCreation Spaces on Greenham Common, a former USAF depot.  I designed the set, which led the audience through a landing craft and into an open space sectioned into stages: the mulberry Harbour, Southwick Headquarters, a local pub and Greenham Airbase.  After the performance, the cast led the audience back into the first space transformed into a 1940s tea dance with a live band.  The one-hundred-plus cast was built up of a number of local dance and performance groups. Their costumes gave the impression of military uniform: shades of green built up in layers of modern and period dress. 

D-Day 75 was co-produced by The Watermill Theatre, Corn Exchange Newbury and Greenham Trust.
