I attended the opening night performance of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime in the Board Gais theatre in Grand Canal Dock on Tuesday the 7th of October. First of all the show was amazing. A story of a boy who tries to find out who killed his neighbours dog, by investigating this incident things about his own family secrets begin to unfold.
The reason I chose to discuss this was because of the graphic work onstage, The use of light studded screens in telling the story. It was extremely clever. There were no painted sets, just light studded walls everywhere that were manipulated amazingly to represent neighbourhoods, trains and outer space. This was a different type of story telling one I have not seen before and It got me thinking about how I could make my project different and unique.
