The War Habit
Conceptual costume and set design - Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama - 2020
Directed by Bridget Keehan
This conceptual project was following the process of an R&D. In collaboration with Bridget we created a found space performance around Lavernock Battery, and old disaffected war battery on the Welsh coast. After visiting the site together, she came up with a text inspired by poems, by the movement of the trees and the beauty of the welsh nature. Together we imagined a performance about war, and its eternal nature.
There was a great liberty about this project to use a varied choice of materials. I choose to use a lot of fabrics, stitches and collages to represent to eternal layering of time throughout history.
