Narrative

Set and Costume Designer 

For this adaptation of Anthony Neilson's vibrant, fast-paced drama I created an apocalyptic, raw-boned set with pre-recorded video footage, social media and a live feed filmed backstage.  A ramp and two skewed platforms were submerged in six tons of black gravel, providing a range of levels, obstacles and audible environments for the actors.
