A post show interview with Designer Faye Brinkworth
The feedback I have had from friends, family and colleges has been positive. I think what was interesting about our show was it was something different. I had never seen a one hour puppetry production performed all to Mahler's first symphony in or out of Central and I don't think many other people had either. It was great to offer a show that was innovative in so many ways. The puppets were definitely the highlight of the performance and everyone had their favorite characters whether it was Buck, the pug, the squirrel..!\
JY: What's been the most challenging thing you've had to work through during this production?
FB: The most challenging...that is a difficult one as there have been many. I think the hardest thing was to ensure that we maintained a simple beauty that was contained both within the aesthetics and the narrative we were telling.
Mark Down and Nick Barnes are incredibly talented practitioners with immense imagination and insight to create shows that are creatively diverse and challenging. It has been a privilege to work with them and I look forward to seeing many more of their shows.
