This summer I designed and produced the set costumes and props for Miss Havisham's Expectations, written and directed by Di Sherlock, performed by Linda Marlowe, lighting design by Paul Green. It's had great reviews at Edinburgh Fringe (see links below) and is now touring. This has been a wonderful project to work on and to be part of an amazing team.
There is a design style that runs through all my work, paintings and production. These next images are of the set and costumes I produced for Dance Continuum for the performance 'Of Myths and Moon dragons' premiered at Sadlers Wells Theatre.
The images from Sygiria in Sri Lanka (all in private collections) and clouds of cherubs are far removed from my painting for 9/11 memorial museum or the 1100 Tokens (see earlier posts on this blog)
Yet fifteen years after these works I was commission last year to turn a new plastered wall into a surface that looks as if it hasn't been touched in fifty years.
We had some great reviews this summer for Miss Havisham's Expectations:
many more ... and some lovely comments on the costume / set design and Paul green's lighting...
Michael Coveney: Clever design and costumes by Andie Scott, and lighting by Paul Green, help Marlowe's mighty line in fringe fantasia: great riches, indeed, in a little room.
fringe guru: 'The iconic Miss Haversham look, a skeletal old lady in a decaying wedding dress, is created beautifully. And the costume design was my favourite part of this show; the two ‘Estella’ dresses are quite breathtaking, glistening like sweetie wrappers...'
and 'The cleverly designed costumes really added to the changing characters that Linda had to play.'
