Poncho's and all
Well today we got 80 metres of fabric for Poncho's for the audience to wear. As there are 4 tribes in the play, one colour for each tribe. So we have split the audience up into 50 audience members for each colour as we have only 80 metres we have produced 110 ponchos, 55 of pink and 55 of green. we have produced a 5 poncho contingency plan per colour. We are getting together the milky Magician costume, it is nearly finished. We have also de-barked 5 sticks of wood ready for staffs for some of the characters. We also have thoughts of the Water Nymphs and what they are like and what we can do with them. As the Design team had a little day trip to chiswick house on monday, unfortunately we could not go around all the gardens but we could see them from some points of the cordened off area which went to the house (as it was open). so we had a few ideas from what we saw. We are thinking that the Water Nymph queen could travel across from the island in the middle of the river to the audience on a little raft or boat. Or if possible, walk across the water on a hidden platform under the water. There are lots of ideas coming from our team and we are getting things done. Lets hope it carrys on like this!
