Is it a miracle, when a farm girl hears voices, finds a sword and liberates
France?  Is it a sequence of coincidences?  Or is it simply the
result of careful calculations and manipulations?  Joan fights her way
through political and religious obstacles to fulfil her mission as a saint in
the Hundred Years War, but not everyone sees history with the same eyes.
When church and empire collide – is there space left for the dream of a farm

We’re taking a look at the cloud lamps made for "The Tempest" in today's #FlashbackFriday post and shedding a bit of cotton-wool-covered spotlight on what goes on behind the scenes. During the rehearsal weekend the props team followed a Youtube tutorial and made three cloud lamps out of cotton wool glued to plastic bottles with the tops and bottoms cut off. They added coloured, battery-operated LED fairy lights and they turned out well and about as woolly as a sheep.
However, as the premiere drew closer, it became clear that the cloud lamps would have to be operated by the light board. So as well as swapping out the fairy lights with LED bulbs, they decided to make bigger clouds with a hole at the top to allow the heat to escape (even though LED bulbs don't get extremely hot) by gluing more cotton wool to lamp shades. The prop team resembled the lamps after this craft project but the outcome was good enough for the stage. The clouds looked more round and less...cloud-shaped but also more visible stage left where our cloud sheep (by now lovingly christened Wolli, Dolly and Shaun) kept the bamboo company.
#Backstagespotlight will be covering more costume, prop and stage design which never made in on stage in the future.

It is a baby, but it is also a blanket. We didn’t really have to but we did this multiple times anyway. And in our free time, we invent silly songs for fun.
