Set Design

A colleague, Electra, [Visual Art and Design teacher] has been wanting to do some theatre design for some years and this is the result.

The Cavern of the Water Witch

The Citadel of the Ice Princess

The Temple of the Earth Mother

The set up at the bottom – the Forest – shows all three elements close together. She didn’t do all of the other elements, but each construct will have subtle differences to distinguish one from the others.
In performance, each element is constructed out of flats 2440 high and 1220 wide. Double sided and free standing. The decorative bits are cut from core flute and sit proud of the black [therefore mostly ignorable ] background. They become three dimensional and [using LED luminaries] will take on what ever glowing colour we choose.
You can guess… Forest Greens and yellows, the occasional autumn flame for the forest.
Indigo, Violet, deep blue, watery green for the cavern.
WHITE white for the Ice Citadel with glacial blue and green shadows…

They will set apart from each other to define a curved performance space with opportunities for exits and entrances at each edge.

It’s going to look VERY cool….
