Philip Pullman's Grimm Tales
SET & COSTUME DESIGN
Written by Philip Pullman
Adapted by Philip Wilson
Directed by Jac Ifan Moore
My 3rd year theatre production was for the
Richard Burton Company's production of Philip Pullman's Grimm Tales, from a script adapted by Philip Wilson.
Working with director Jac Ifan Moore we wanted to create a fun, family show for the Christmas season. The staging needed to be fast-moving, witty and with quirky props.
As the play involved 5 different stories, it was important to create an adaptable space where the set could be used in unexpected ways.
The design also featured a live band of 4 musicians; The Dead Relatives. Their positioning influenced the staging and the gallery gave them space to perform, yet still feel a visible part of the show.
It also served to add levels for the actors to perform.
