Late Night

Show:    'Glowworm' by Tom Nieboer

Venue:   Project Art Centre / Project Cube

Run:       10th - 17th Sept 2016

Role:      Production Designer

 

 By the fountain at the edge of the Oxborough Gardens, an existential crisis is sparked by a midnight encounter with a glowworm. Zelle De Brulle, an adolescent insect collector, becomes awakened to a universe of possibility and discovers what it really means to be alive.

The show we set out to make is a visual storytelling performance, where text meets design, movement, and music. In the intimate environment of Uncle BugBoy’s laboratory, our entomologist narrators bring the audience on a sensory journey, creating visual spectacles and private recognitions in a life-and-death drama about learning how to shine.

Our three narrators transform into multiple characters within the story, creating environments and soundscapes, manipulating objects, materials, light and puppets to bring the world of Zelle de Brulle off the page. We are exploring transformative movement and dynamic materials in order to combine multiple storytelling tools in one performance.
