Design Statement

Blood Brothers, is an intimate human tragedy set in 1950’s England. Whereas typically performed with a small cast, the director Lindsey McAlister of the Hong Kong production envisioned a performance of a larger scale…30 dancers, 25 chorus plus the 8 main characters – and the live band on stage. The cast was not the only thing that was large, the “theater” was actually an amphitheater. Only the budget wasn’t supersized!

The amphitheater was the biggest challenge, a Greek theater without typical proscenium theater artifices: no wings, no fly, etc. In discussing the opportunities and constraints with the director, we searched for an appropriate world that would at once both hide some of the cast and band, but also convey their domestic world. We ended up talking about cities and forests in the UK’s post-war period. Given the show’s myths and superstitions, we believed, an urban woods, might just work. With the director and lighting designer, we developed this idea and our “domestic forest” became one of colorful floor lamps, armchairs and big ghostly trees that descended towards the rear allowing the cast to melt into and out of it yet all the while still being “onstage”.
