Songs for a New World

It’s been ridiculously long. I’m working on another update post, but here are some pictures from Songs.

It’s actually such a long time ago I don’t remember what happened. -kicks self-



But yes, this was the set design. My first full set design, that could not have been accomplished without the help and favors of a lot of people.

Now, I’m editing photos of the Queensland trip I took this May/June. Until next time!

22 Days

It’s 22 days to May 9, which is the final day of anything college related.

It’s about time I update ahhahha….

If you’ve been following me on Twitter/Instagram, you’d know that I’ve completed my thesis. It’s titled “The Smell of Truth” and explores the use of olfactory elements in the theatre.

So, some backlogged pictures.

 

More pictures of The Winter’s Tale lobby design! Fairylights in bottles. Fairylight anything.

And a shameless picture of me with a bottle. So dreamy, right! Haha!

I also had a catch-up session with the awesome people I met from Harry Potter : The Exhibition at the ArtScience Museum. We went to Au Chocolat. BEST. PLACE. EVAR. Unfffffff their iced chocolate… #DirtyDirtyEats

This was also the night that Nadia, Mina and I walked to Potong Pasir from Marina Bay Sands. I was in heeled boots. It got painful at the end but it was INSANELY fun walking with them. We should totally do that again. ^_^

In the food adventure department, have an omelette. It’s not exactly an omelette because it refused to close on itself. Honestly, how do you do it?! So it’s an open-faced omelette with steamed corn, cheese, and basil. Sooooo gooood.

In other news, we recently finished our grad show, Memorabilia. Thank you for coming if you saw it, and YOU MISSED OUT ON AN AWESOME SHOW if you didn’t. 😉 I really enjoyed the process and devising now that I think about it. It was a bit of a torture when I was in the moment, but it really was quite fun. Edith and Brian are geniuses. GENIUSES.

I’ve also been attempting to kick my body clock back to human times, so I’m up at 9AM typing this, then I’m heading to the gym. #HealthyLifestyle

Things Due:

  1. Composition Assessment (The Tempest)
  2. Japanese Accent Assessment
  3. Intercultural Theatre Casebook

Then Showcase. Mark your calendars for May 8 and 9!

Until next time…

Finding Art

Happy midweek, everyone. It’s been a long while since my last update. I’ve been really busy (what’s new?) rehearsing for our grad show –  MEMORABILIA, or the Magic Number Seven, Plus or Minus Two.

“Life without memory is no life at all. Our memory is our coherence, our reason, our feeling, even our action. Without it we are nothing.” Luis Bunuel

 

Rehearsals have been getting really fun and interesting, though really mind-warping and brain-messing at times, but I’m loving it! It’s going to be running from Mon 1 Apr – Thur 4 Apr 2013, so be there!

Other than that, I’ve also completed the first draft of my thesis, which was a very painful process. I’ve not read so much non-fiction in my life. But along the way I also discovered so many interesting reads, so as painful as the process was… You know. Life experience.

This was the poster/flyer design for the piece I did as part of my research. My thesis explores the relation between smell and memory making, and smell in the theatre. I got my first draft  back and it needs loads of reworking, but I’m meeting my supervisor on Friday to chat about that.

It’s a countdown of three weeks to show, and less than two months until we graduate. This week, Jean-Guy Lecat came to view our design. He’s so awesome and it’s really all “WHAT’S GOING ON IN HIS MIND HE’S A GENIUS” and he’s so brillant. Although he tore our design apart (not literally) there was so much truth. Got so re-inspired when he was having Q&A. He’s viewing composition class tomorrow and aaah… So nervous. Haha.

Selfie with a bottle hah.
Selfie with a bottle hah.

If you’ve been following me on Twitter/Instagram, you’d already know that the Level 3 Acting class (i.e. my class) did the lobby for the Level 2’s performance of The Winter’s Tale. We taped a string installation, cut up some CDS up, and stuffed fairylights into wine bottles and suspended them.

TADAH!!!!!!!! I have a lot more photos I really should edit.

Yep.

I also discovered the amazing world of preset/premade/downloadable photoshop curves and actions! Dug up an old photo of Echo and edited it:

 

Alright, I really should update a lot more. I promise to try.

This is King Lear and the day we suspended 300 needles from thread from a ceiling. We then used strobe lights of two speeds to light the needles. It really does look better in real life. It’s also by far my favourite design. This was by Aisyah, Sherri, Dex and myself.

This is in a rehearsal space and the design for our composition class for Death of a Salesman.  I don’t know how I feel about it yet, but naked light bulbs being suspended – always cool. This was by Gokul, Aisyah, Dex, Sherri, Wendy.

Alright, I’ll update again soon.

My artist also hates me now. I took her out on one date and never called her again. I’m a terrible person. 😦
