Backstage life

Friday, October 27th, 2017

Today I´m sharing a few photos from my Spindelmaker Instagram-account, showing what the the theatre looks like when you´re working backstage. Personally I have several functions in Haugesund Teater´s staging of Jesus Christ Superstar. I´m the props-manager, the dresser and part of the technical stage-crew. What the audience sees is the magic that happens on […]

Sunday, August 27th, 2017

Saturday, we invited the public to an open house at the workshop. It was a social event, and lots of people stopped by.

Hook´s hooks

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Made by sawing off the stem of plastic glasses, drilling a hole at the bottom/top. Glueing on the “tool” of desire, in this case a salad-fork in brass and a “whipper” […]

Monday, November 28th, 2016

One of the Lost Kids in Peter Pan, is a former boarding school student. So he needs a proper school uniform. A dark bottle green blazer and matching skirt has been bought on eBay. I did want to add a little imagined school emblem on the blazers. A quick google-image-search provided the image, and I […]

The pirate-flag

Sunday, November 27th, 2016

For Hook´s ship we need a proper pirate flag! I know they are for sale, printed pirate-flags very cheaply. But I didn´t want a pre-fabricated dime-a-dozen black-and-white pirate flag.
