footfalls by samuel beckett

I haven’t been writing so much as I have been really busy building the set and costume for “FOOTFALLS” by Samuel Beckett.

The play was on last week and is the conclusion of a collaboration between students of Performance design & practice (me), Directors from the Drama Centre London and also MA students of Classical European Acting of the Drama Centre as well.

I was collaborating with Marta Quileri to design and build the piece and with the director Oliver Dawe.

At the beginning of the piece for the scene change we had a projection, which was amazing for me as for the final project I am writing about how the use of projection and video in theatre and performance is a tool to change the viewer’s perception of time and space.

check it out, this incredible awesome very short film, reference for costume, light, rhythm, art!

inspiration for art direction

“Noel, o poeta da vila” shows beautifully the story of NOEL ROSA, one of the biggest music composers on brazilian history. Noel gave a new twist to samba, combining its afro-brazilian roots with a more urban, witty language and making it a vehicle for ironic social commentary.

His short life (he died at 26) allowed him to compose around 250 songs, and this film presents his life beautifully. The cinematography and art direction are AMAZING, and the scriptwriter is a friend of mine, Pedro Vicente, who is in a picture on the “behind the scenes” of jack malchance, as he is also an actor and will be one of the characters on episode 6.

The art direction is for sure one big reference for me, the textures and compositions of the film are great, the costume is beautiful!

behind the scenes

And the WEB DRAMA “Jack Malchance” continues to be filmed. We shot more scenes last friday and also shot an episode in São Paulo, Brazil, with amazing brazilian actors and crew.

Some photographs from behind the scenes, on episodes 3, 4, 5 and 6.
