BOUDICA (2021)

I designed Boudica during my final year at Bruford. It’s an epic rewrite of the historical events between the Celtics and Romans, a tale of betrayal, warring tribes and blood-thirsty rivalry.

The focus of the design was texture and colour. I wanted the the Romans and Celtics to have a stark contrast- using natural wools, linens, leathers and earth tones for the celts and more rigid materials and colour schemes for the Romans; this was to reflect the wild, unpredictability of the Celts versus the army-like mindset adopted by the Roman troops.

The set is focused around a large metal structure, adorned with sheets of corrugated iron, metal barrels and wooden crates. The idea was to create a climbing frame like structure for the actors to play with- something to climb, swing from, jump over and use as a percussive instrument to create a live score.
