‘Our video, sound and lighting designs are instrumental: they could be thought of as a fourth actor’
The final week of rehearsals and our move into the theatre has been tremendously exciting. Our video, sound and lighting designs are instrumental: they could be thought of as a fourth actor. Luckily we have had a flavour of sound and video design in the rehearsal room; but realising the show as a whole only happens when the lights dim, the creative team hunker down with their laptops and the technical rehearsal commences.
In order to prepare for our move into the theatre, the third week of rehearsals has ended with us welcoming designer Georgia Lowe, sound designer Richard Hammarton, lighting designer Elliot Griggs and video designer Zsolt Balogh into the rehearsal room. We moved from close text work and the rehearsing of small sections of script at the start of the week into runs by Friday – piecing together all of our work thus far. Watching Jacques, Daisy and Ian’s performances take flight is one of the most joyful parts of the rehearsal process. And as I write this, watching Faust shaping up on the Watermill stage, I am hugely excited for our audiences to come and share this story.
