Carousel

Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel at the Unity was my directorial debut for What We Did Next. I wanted to bring a simplicity to the production both visually and stripped back in musical arrangement to help concentrate on the performances given by my excellent cast. The artwork started with a paper model of a Carousel along with some fairy lights to create the bokeh effect in the photo we finally used. It made sense to tie in the link Liverpool has with the musical and include an alternative poster/flyer with “You’ll never walk alone” featured within the artwork. www.wwdn.co.uk/carousel-2014/

Spring Awakening is a show based upon the play Spring Awakening (1891) by Frank Wedekind which was banned in Germany for it's strong themes concerning abortion, homosexuality, rape, child abuse and suicide. I produced the What We Did Next production and was also responsible for the artwork and promotion of the show. I wanted the artwork to show the sexual tension between the two main characters combined with lighting that pertains to the show rock score.

Laura Belém’s The Temple of a Thousand Bells

The Liverpool Biennial is one of my favourite times of year, when the city has a wide range of artists bringing the city some beautiful installations. Brazilian visual artist Laura Belém‘s artwork, The Temple of a Thousand Bells was situated at the Oratory beside Liverpool Cathedral, the piece is composed of a thousand hand blown glass bells and a polyphonic sound track creating a 3-D effect. My photos are of the Bells and the Oratory. The small bird is Tracy Emin’s The Roman Standard – which features a small bird on top of a four-metre high bronze pole – is a tribute to the city’s famous symbol the Liver Bird.The sculpture was commissioned by the BBC as part of their contribution to the art05 festival and Liverpool’s year as European Capital of Culture.

Company

Company was the first outing for What We Did Next, when myself and a group of friends joined forces and after a few drinks said “how hard could it be to set up a theatre company?” Company was proof that it was really hard, but a whole heap of fun. The show is about a mid life crisis and the lead character talking to his various friends about their relationships and his own. www.wwdn.co.uk/company-2009/
