The production of cabaret, Directed by Micheala Harris, was my final project of my university degree course. It completed two sell out runs at Derby theatre before heading off to the Edinburgh fringe festival. For this production I designed, rigged and operated the lighting. I also Designed the set and assisted with its construction. Sound came by way of a live band led by Adam Howell.
This classic script was brought to life by 'The kitchen table trio'. My role was as lighting and sound designer/Technician. I had fun designing this one, the show only takes place over 6 scenes so I implimented some new, creative ideas that I think brought each scene to life.

For this piece I designed and operated both the lighting and sound. I Also filmed, edited and operated all the video projections used in the show.
