+LIGHTING SET COSTUME
The Street Theatre 2012
A series of 15 vignettes on destructive relationships, production design for Our Shadows Pass Only Once supported the entrapment and isolation in the text. Costumed in gradations of flesh tones and bruised colours, tenderly barefoot or armoured against pain, the unnamed characters walked through a sunken fighters pit of notecards. Severe chairs and practical light fittings recalled both domesticity and a holding cell. Lighting was sparse and unforgiving, as direct and lonely as car headlights.
