LA VOIX HUMAINE
CONCEPTUAL : JMK AWARD RUNNER UP
Director Tom Bailey
Lighting design Joe Price
Written by Jean Cocteau
Venue The Clare, Young Vic Theatre
This installation-like design is for Tom Bailey and my interpretation of Jean Cocteau's text 'La Voix Humaine'. Seeing the monologue into two actors, we see the audience inside the machine, amongst the net of wires that are referenced so often in the text. Images are of semi-staged sharing after week R&D at NT Studio.
Feedback from the judges on the design:
"an exciting collaboration with the director. The design appeared achievable on the budget and it was good that consideration had been given to rehearsing this physical production and what would be needed in the room. This was a strong production proposal"
Further life for this planned for 2018
