Frame of Mind – Activ8

Performed at Bolton Octagon, Studio & Mainhouse

Directed by Pete Smith

Lighting deisign by Gary Whittaker

I was involved in the devising process of this health and education project. I worked closely with the young people as they created their characters which made designing the costume very straightforward. The set had to be suitable for both spaces at the Octagon. As it had to be ready before the script was finalised, it had to have scope for different possibilities. I used real quotes about violence and mental health, from local and national papers, breaking through the wallpaper of their perfectly normal homes.
