For the past week I've been working on a couple of pieces for Glasgow Life's Christmas pantomime Aladdin. I was brought on board by the lovely Brian Hartley. Here are a few snaps of the unpainted structure for Aladdin's cave. It will be decorated to look like a shop front on the outside, and a glittery fantastical cave on the inside. The small central doors open to allow a performer to climb through, then at a later point the larger doors open to reveal the inside of the cave. This and the magic washing machine have been really interesting builds, I enjoy making objects which will be used in performance, and I can't wait to see them in action!
A test run of the full-size Magic Washing Machine I'm working on for a panto version of Aladdin. It will 'magically' switch a dirty garment for a clean garment. This is the unfinished wooden structure, next it will get tested by the cast, then painted to look less like a wooden box and more like a washing machine.
Another miniature test, this time for a set piece which changes colour and gets bigger.
