FALLING THROUGH A SEA OF GREEN- NEED TO KNOW THEATRE COMPANY

Concept: The design for 'Falling Through a Sea of Green' presented elements of a family home as if drawn by the main character with Asperger's Syndrome. The white blank space represented a piece of paper and graphic dark lines outlined furniture, as if sketched with a pencil. The graphic and geometric quality also represented the main character's want of symmetry, order and his love for maths. Colour choices of props also helped to empathise the logical nature of the character's thinking. The two projection screens allowed us to present additional information to the school groups and provided a way of demonstrating two different perspectives to a situation.
