Her Naked Skin
directed by Yael Shavit and designed by Grace Santry, at Embassy Theatre, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, 29 November - 2 December 2017
I was one of three scenic artists on this show, in the studio space at Central. We were led by a fourth, Jax Miller. The set was entirely concrete, painted partially in the workshop and then partially once it had been laid in the space. The method was a scumbled base, with layers of washes and spatter over the top, that we let run together to create interesting marbled patterns. We then rollered several layers of tinted glaze over the top, to dull it down and darken it.
