The Beautiful Ones Show Photos

The Beautiful Ones

I co-directed, performed, wrote the app, made the instruments, wrote the music, played the instruments, and co-wrote the audio guide in The Beautiful Ones for my company, Rooftop Productions. If there had been any baskets in the performance, I would have woven them. I’ll include some photos below, but there is much more information about the show on the Rooftop Productions’ website.

Superheroes Don't Give a Shit!

Superheroes Don’t Give a Shit!

Superheroes Don’t Give a Shit! 《超能人廢能事》 was created as a devised collaborative piece with We Draman actors and students. We began with workshops in site-specific and devised ways of working, going on to create material and refine it into a show. Our starting point was the title, and the idea of everyday heroism. The result was an entirely original piece using all of the different spaces in We Draman’s studios, including the foyer and kitchen areas. This is We Draman’s fifth yearly Creative Project, and it was performed from 9th-19th October 2014.

Found a bunch of behind the scenes photos from Festa Farina e Forca while I was looking for the performance photos for an article. Not sure if I shared them before, but I definitely should have.

Technology in Superheroes Don't Give a Shit!

Tech Stuff in Superheroes Don’t Give a Shit!

I’ve decided to write up the technical aspects of Superheroes Don’t Give a Shit!, as documentation of the project, and for the enjoyment of my geekier friends. I hope that the performance came across as very audience-centric and performer-driven rather than relying on the spectacle of technical tricks to make it work. That being said, the setup was reasonably complex for a small black box theatre, and it’s interesting for me to discuss how it was done.
