OUR COUNTRY'S GOOD - PERFORMANCE DESIGN
Designed in collaboration with director Richard Beecham and designer Ti Green, ‘OUR COUNTRY’S GOOD’ re-stages Wertenbaker’s humanist play within a post-colonial context. The action of the play takes place on the red arid sands of the Australian desert, standing in stark contrast with the elaborate Georgian architecture of the Bristol Old Vic auditorium. A union jack flag is carried through the audience onto the stage, suggesting our implicit responsibility in the appropriation of Indigenous Australian soil. A combination of projected and practical lighting on the wrap-around cyclorama was designed to create an immersive skybox that reflects the natural beauty of the Australian landscape.
