Accountants meeting today, stock take tomorrow and new item/business ideas, vintage fair on Saturday and new client pieces for October to crack on with; looks like I’m going to be a busy lady over the next month or so…. YAY! :D
Don’t forget, if you are interested to see anything else that I’m working on or getting up to, my website is also updated regularly - www.little-miss-sew-n-sew.com.
On Thursday 11th September, ‘Ragnarok’ opened at the Hush House at Bentwaters Parks in Rendlesham, Suffolk. The Hush House itself is an old jet engine testing hanger on the old air base but is now primarily used for TV, Film and Theatre locations. The atmosphere in there is fantastic for this chilling tale of the Norse gods and the events leading up to the end of all things; Ragnarok - The Doom of the Gods. This cold and empty space is transformed into a wonderful well of storytelling by the incredible and creative Eastern Angles team.
Charles Way has cunningly woven this series of apocalyptic events into a story to enthrall and completely capture the imaginations of the audience while making the plot easy to follow for all ages with a few laughs along the way. Samuel Wyer’s design work captures the scenes beautiful with a simple elegance allowing the actors to fully embrace their characters while bringing a delightful mix of the traditional with the call for a new, modern take on mythology - especially with the rise in popularity of the tales of the Gods currently seen in Hollywood. In addition to this, his puppetry adds a comedic element to the performance and enhances the story in such a way that the audience begins to feel not only for the characters played by actors but by the puppets as well.
It has been both a joy and a totally invaluable experience to work with these professionals (along with many others) in the run up to this show, and I wish all the cast and crew the best of luck with the remaining dates of the run. There is still time to get your tickets for this amazing production and read more about it, just visit the Eastern Angles website here and support local creative individuals! :)
All the costumes for ‘Ragnarok’ are really starting to come together now, but there is still so much to do! It has a really awesome apocalypse/mad max/steam punk-ish vibe to it, all marvellously exciting. I will most definitely be spamming about it closer to opening night!
I got to meet the designer today as well and it’s really interesting to see how other people who have been in the industry for a while work, how their thought processes work etc. I think this is possibly the best experience I could possibly have got straight after leaving uni!
