- Only if Romeo Knew
stage set design
- Cardboard set design for "Only If Romeo Knew", a fund raising production for Haiti Relief in 2010.A catwalk stage set is proposed connecting the 2 main stage on either end of the theatre, with small intermediate stages along the catwalk, all constructed from cardboard or recycled material.
The feature is a gigantic hand hovering above the main stage, made out of 700 recycled packaging boxes, it stretches approximately 10 metres in both directions, reaching past the stage and into the audience seatingA virtual model was created in Sketchup, to accurately work out the position of each box, then assembled in 27 smaller sections as the complete sculpture is too big for the space.
- As well as the hovering hand, the rest of the cardboard set includes:- A fully functional dining table and chairs made from cardboard tubes, assembled together via threading of fishing wires.- 2 full size guard dog sculpture framing the dining room set.- A moose head wall mount display to the centre of dining room.- Candle displayThe cardboard sets are all sold via auction at the end of the performance, with all money raised going toward the Haiti Relief.
