Hayley Green SST10 Idea

2 Dec

I’m about to start work on a collection of poetry to develop a stage play around self harm and mental health.

I really want to come at the light theme from the use of lighting on stage.

Idea 1: Shadows – linking in to how you can sort of become a shadow of yourself when experiencing self harm urges or struggling with mental health difficulties.

Using light in something like this… maybe looking for a group to collaborate with: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrhDN-bm0rk

Idea 2: Using dark and light in the performance to create robotic type characters on stage, sort of like game characters – coming at the self harm topic as if you’re playing a game, which it quite often feels like.

Staging something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Rot9uaVO8s

Obviously it’s never going to be as high tech as this but it’s something I really want to incorporate in the stage project I’m working on. I think collaboration is key.
