What I've been up to: New Blog

Some of you might remember I've been hinting about work I've been involved with with Frank Theatre, but up until now I haven't shown you any of it. I've finally set a up a new blog to record my work and exploration of a new field within the theatre that we have dubbed Design Dramaturgy. If you'd like to follow me along this very exciting road, I'd be pleased to have you join me there too.

Above are two plaster bandage masks of Frank Theatre actors, Lisa O'Neill and Michael Coughlan. These were used as the base for making latex masks which where then attached to special life-size bodies John Nobbs and I constructed. John named them "Selfers" and one of each of the ensemble are being made (currently there are six). I'm sure you'll see them soon as the work evolves on the Design Dramaturge blog.
