Role: Lighting and Sound designer

Performed by M6 Youth Theatre for National Theatre Connections. I designed the lighting and sound for this project. We worked with Psytrance and 0 fade times on the lights to create a fast chaotic environment. We also employed side lighting and strong back light to explore silhouettes, amplifying the metal woven structures.
