On The Shoulders Of Giants

 Here are a few snaps from this truly spectacular event, in Oldham last autumn to celebrate the grand re-opening of Oldham Town Hall. 'On The Shoulders Of Giants' was directed and produced by Oldham Theatre Workshop, a fantastic theatre company for young people. The show was a real team effort, but the driving force behind the show was Sarah Nelson, the writer and director, and James Atherton, the composer the and director of OTW. The spectacular aerial work was by the amazing Upswing company, and Handmade Parade designed and made the wonderful, Oldham Giant puppet.

With help from my amazing assistant Irene Jade, I designed the props and costumes for the opening show, which really was a sight to behold! A rather crazy, but amazingly fun project to be a part of!
