First Year University Brief


Shakespeare's classic: The Tempest reinterpreted with a steampunk twist. An Air Pirates ship gets struck by lightning in a storm and crashes on a cloud where a story of magic pursues.


This was the first theatrical project set during the Design for Exhibition and Museums course, we were encouraged to reinvent The Tempest and create a new original path for it to take. Being inspired by an image found online my project went in the directon of 'Air Pirates'. Lighting was manipulated to enhance the set and build another layer of atmosphere into the design, reflecting the mood on stage. Projections were also used to show flashbacks and other complicated parts of the story.
