CFT Residency Studio Work

I’m becoming even more aware of the significance of light and dark in the theatre. Even to describe the theatre as ‘dark’ means that there are no shows on at the moment. I am completely fascinated by the way in which the audience are carried from full light in the Foyer, up the stairs and into the Twilight (thanks auto-correct – you just made this Twiglet!)…into the Twilight zone where one’s eyes can adjust to the dimming of light and the excitement of being in the auditorium can start to build. Brilliant!

This work could lead to a change in palette for paintings related to the theatre.
