Design Statement

‘Un’ is a dance production about how we stage ourselves, which takes us on a journey through five human states of being towards simplicity.
From the first section, where we attempt to make ourselves physically noticed we end up appearing “unattractive”, we then move to “uncover” what we covet revealing less understood motivations for our actions. The result of being unable to make ourselves understood and leaving things “unsaid”, we can end up feeling “unloved”. As we move through the confusion we place upon almost everything we do, often lies an uncomplicated aim.

The set design set out to imitate the choreographers vision from Unattractive and Undone to Uncluttered. I worked closely with Peter Sheedy, the choreographer, to obtain this through a creative process which just kept generating itself.

The design was based around an object, representing everything we love and identify ourselves with, which Peter decided early in the process, to be a cube, which could be pulled apart into smaller cubes to be manipulated by a dancer whose character was in love with. Taking this idea of a cube object, I ran with it and produced a set with two larger cubes and a wall upstage to look like a cube coming out of the wall, with a hole in it to fit the other cubes. One of the cubes was broken into four pieces and undone around the stage, later to be put together by the dancers over the other cube. The hole in the wall was incorporated in the last section of the piece for the dancer to push the mended cube into the wall, to unclutter and provide a space of simplicity.
