Today was the dress rehearsal for the latest Future Cinema. This production of the Shawshank Redemption which ran over from Secret Cinema’s last endeavour is something I was working on throughout Autumn. I did an installation for them and ended up performing and now I’m back for the next run with my flatmates. It’s a fun bunch of people and they are an awesome company to work for- and I get to pretend I’m an actress. Though this is far from the truth it is all too easy to fall into the role of a medical professional from the deep South.
This being said, I have blue hair and am playing the part of a 1950s nurse. So I had quite a lot of fun this afternoon trying to remedy the problem by picking out a suitable wig from Dalston High Street… I bought a proper Dolly Parton wig, big, blonde and bouncy. I may look a bit ridiculous but I fell slightly in love with having some long flowing locks.
