Yarla and the Winter Wood

Here are some production shots from Yarla and the Winter Wood, a touring theatre production for 0 - 3 year olds, for which I did the set design and build, and some prop making. You can read more about the production here, which was made by Jen Edgar for Starcatchers. Many thanks to Fergus Dunnet for his hard work, particularly in scenery painting.

We used a lot of found items for the props in this, and the trees themsleves are carpet tubes from Victoria Road carpets (thanks go to them). The brief was to design a flexible set that could be reconfigured as the venue allowed (venues ranged from libraries, to nurseries, to theatres), and be mountable and demountable in 2 hours. The entire set fitted in a transit van and was handleable by the touring company of 3. There are lots of great photos from the development on Jen's blog here.
