The Imaginarium / Village Underground
director Louis Waymouth / client Petersham Playhouse / Secret Productions / date Dec 2013
The Imaginarium came to Village Underground for the Christmas season 2013. Beautifully designed by my great friend Cecilia Carey, Louis Waymouth's production and performance made this immersive theatre experience one of the best things to... experience in December. I composed a Nino Rota inspired orchestral overture to kick off the proceedings and a pretty disturbing oriental Alien dance with curdling screaming. My biggest challenge was to bring to life Cecilia's mind-reading chair, the big feature of the night. Sounds objectives included old machinary cranking, a neurone shift through electrodes and electricity running through rusty cables.
