The room that contains all the world

By spotogspindel | June 24, 2015

This week I´ve been working on the set for Peter Pan. Below you can see part of the model. I´ve been working vey close with the director, throwing ideas at each other. It´s a very fun and creative way of working. Instead of sitting by yourself, thinking up things, you constantly get questions and new ideas building on your own. It´s especially nice, since the director, Runa, and I have worked close together as colleagues for many years before. Then we were both teachers, working with a theatre-class, now we are both professionals.


Our version of Peter Pan is slightly different from the movie-version. Instead of changing the set from the bedroom to the flight in the night to the rain-forrest to the cave to the cliff to the pirat-ship and then back again… we´ve made the shoe story take place in one room, which does´t really change all that much during the story. It´s all there from the beginning. So there are surreal elements, partly being inside, partly being outside, but imagination can make anything real, so why not? 🙂

The building of the set won´t start until after the summer. Once the carpenters have built the different elements, I´ll come back in and start the painting, plastering and distressing.

    Så spennende! Er det en modell type “dukkehus” som er på bildet? Masse lykke til 🙂
