We had a one day workshop on making paper theatres out of shoe boxes. The research was interesting as I found I really enjoyed David Hockney’s set design work. I found it fascinating, almost creepy, this surreal other world.
During the workshop, I must admit, it wasn’t my finest hour at all. I don’t think personally, I will use this workshop and make any more box theatres, although it did make me think about pacing and narrative and I would actually like to do something on a large scale in a small space, like an instillation piece bringing people into another world. I will think about taking it in other directions.
