2013 Bussey Building
Dir - Harold Finley
Designer Mike Lees
"sliding white backdrops are lit up with a moving projection so the artists can 'paint'.
The design takes us through over 50 locations from the sumptuous to the stylized, even
giving us brief splashes of gay subculture from a steam-filled sauna to nightclub raving."
Whats on stage
"Naturalistic scenes are framed by stylized movement, separated by blackouts or by
multiple figures crossing. Mike Lees's setting is simple: a bare stage or sparse items of
furniture against moveable screens and projections of graffiti-making and paintings in
creation. There is a minimalist feel that sharpens the effect of what is presented,
enriched by what appeared to be over one hundred colourful costumes..."
