The Bridge project is deigned to help bridge the gap between learning and practice. For most students it is the first time they put their training into practice and make a performance at Central School of Speech and Drama. Using an adapted Richard III script I worked closely with both directors to create an esthetic for the play. I drew parallels between the high court and thug gangs. Both houses were skin head/teddy boy type characters, their family crests and armour was tattooed onto their skin. Edward’s house, flamboyant with a slightly gourdy feel. Richard’s house rougher and stripped back.
