The award-winning set and video designers of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will reveal the secrets of their trades in Dundee next month.
Award-winning theatre designer Bunny Christie and video and projection designer Finn Ross will take part in a special event organised by Dundee Rep and the V&A on May 21 to discuss their ground breaking work on the play with theatre critic Joyce McMillan.
Their collaboration explored the mind of Christopher, a 15-year-old boy with an extraordinary brain, exceptional at maths but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life.
The play adapted Mark Haddon’s international hit book and Finn and Bunny set was patterned like graph paper with lighting and projections that recreate the experience of being inside Christopher’s mind.
Sarah Saunders, director of learning and innovation at V&A Dundee, said: “Bunny and Finn are both incredible Scottish designers with a passion for creative, collaborative work that is experimental, inventive and hugely exciting for theatre audiences.”
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time won seven 2013 Olivier Awards, including Best Set Design, and five 2015 Tony Awards, including Best Scenic Design.
The event is part of the Ignite festival and will take place at Dundee Rep.
Tickets are free and available from the Rep box office. Booking is essential.
