Over the last couple of months I have been working on a sound design for a play devised by Catherine Alexander and 3rd year collaborative and devised students at Central called ‘Tomorrow I’ll Be Twenty’. The play was to be part of a studio season produced by Complicite at the Pleasance Theatre in London.
It was an extremely exciting process as it was a translation of the book of the same name by Alain Mabanckou, which meant that the show was to be completely devised around the storyline from the book. There were some very exciting sequences that we created for the show, that can be sampled below on Soundcloud. I really enjoyed creating the design for this show, as it allowed for a lot of experimentation in the rehearsal room with the movement of what the actors were doing on stage.
I’m looking forward to working with the 3rd year collaborative and devised students on their next production of ‘The Empress’ in the coming months.
