Shedding a Skin is a story for our times. A play about finding kindness in unexpected places. A play about connecting with what our elders can teach us – new skin honouring old skin. A play about joy, healing and protest. And having a good belly laugh.
‘SHE’S CAPTURED A GENERATION. IT’S A WORK OF INCREDIBLE BEAUTY AND GREAT WIT, SHE WILL GO FAR.’
Our approach for this was to make sure we let Amanda’s brilliant play flow, not interrupting the viewers experience with unnecessary camera moves and cuts. We also spent some time with the lighting designer to make sure the lighting and colours came across on camera.
A few challenges presented themselves with this one – the camera’s proximity to the stage meant we had to bring in very wide lenses. We also had an audience in what is quite a small auditorium. We had to make sure their experience wasn’t hampered too much by the cameras. To help with this, we put cameras on tracks so they were able to reposition to get different angles but also to move from people’s view at appropriate times.
