Ziggurat: The Spiral Way – Lowry Theatre

Directed by Dinos Aristidou

Lighting design by Chris Hooley

Ziggurat was a devised project on the theme of communication based on the story of the Tower of Babel. Over 100 children from schools around Manchester were involved. Artists from the Lowry’s partner companies: Halle, Opera North, Birmingham Royal Ballet and Rambert Dance, worked with groups to create this piece of dance and music theatre to celebrate the Commonwealth. I worked closely with the project director as the design had to be completed before the devising began but did not want to restrict the devising process too much.
