The Making Of
Behind The Project:
All illustrations were drawn digitally “by hand” to give it that traditional Victorian feel. They were then coloured in, printed & paper-cut, and then assembled as a multi-layered theatre display just like their traditional Victorian paper ancestors.
The theatres’ exterior were made of wood and constructed & installed by Amy Beth Addison and assisted by Benedict Romain, who also added miniature lights inside the theatres to create some extra magic when viewed at night-time.
The plinths were made by Ed Thwaites and the client was J. Sheekey restaurant in Central London. The 3 theatres are on display for several months around the holidays in 2022.
