A little after-school activity report today from Nathan Zaver, one of our interior designers from our Conran & Partners office down in Brighton.
We’re a busy lot on the south coast it has to be said, designing secret houses, saving lidos and giving old icons a new lease of life so it comes as no surprise that we’ve got our fingers in a theatrical pie this time!
Over the last few months I have been collaborating with Tristan Sharpe of Dream Think Speak on the Interior Design of the their next production which will be their working of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
It’s been really good fun working on this, especially as it’s a new experience designing set’s for a complex imagining.
I’ve really enjoyed working on it and can’t wait to see it built and to see the production!
THE REST IS SILENCE interweaves performance and film to create a vigorous new interpretation that explores the messy underbelly of Shakespeare’s great play.
Don’t just take his word for it catch ‘The Rest is Silence’ at one of the performances below…
THE REST IS SILENCE will premiere at the Brighton Festival before travelling to the Riverside
Studios as part of LIFT 2012 and then on to Northern Stage as part of the RSC Newcastle season.
