Medea

medea2

For a project on my MA I collaborated with a director from East 15 College and designed a set for Medea by Rachel Cusk in The Olivier Theatre at The National. The final idea I came up with was to have a series of white plastered brick walls. It would depict an abstract room made from layers of walls sitting on the revolve of The Olivier. The idea is that these walls start off as neatly painted bricks and throughout the play the walls lift out of the way gradually, to reveal more and more distressed walls that eventually nature has started to take over. This is showing how Medea’s life at the start is more stable but as the play develops she loses everything and her home is lost and destroyed.
