      Ok folkes this is a recommendation for a fantastic production in the Abbey.. “Improbable Frequency” … and I’m not posting this because I’ve worked on it .. it’s just it would be criminal to miss it.

      Set in Dublin during the emergency, with Myles na Gopaleen and Erwin Schrodinger among others.. it paints a picture of a country with it’s head firmly in the sand … sustained by an wavular forcefield of improbabilities and unfeasible puns….. Oh and the stage is pretty spectacular.. with elements of famous Dublin neon, a well known portico, and a (slightly shocking) Aryan taste in wall drapes…..

      On a more discussional note… do you think stage designers have much to offer architecture.. or vice versa?

      I admire your tenacity, but I hope your critiques are better than your grasp of the dictionary! only messin

      Stage designers – I don’t know, but certainly there’s many a thesis done on the work of architecture / set design in the movies – have a look at Batman or Bladerunner to see imagination run riot.

      In fact, let’s throw this open:

      Well films can be fantastic in how they reflect or push the boundaries of architecture.. in fact I’m trying to remember the name of a sci fi film made in the 40s which has a distinctly Fosteresque bent to it…. I think its the one where another earth is discovered on the other side of the sun… but I’m not sure.
      With stage design .. it’s on a lower budget … but less prone to constraints.. and the audience generally participates directly in the construct.. as opposed to seeing it through a series of chosen camera angles.. there is also something about being there that gives you an insight into the body and it’s immediate designed environment… anyway .. there was a production by Bedrock some years ago called Quay West (translation from the french) where the audience sat on a scaffold around the stage… it was one of my first theatre photo jobs.. and I was struck how relevant the work was to understanding architecture.
