Immersive Installation for contemporary performance of Edgar Allen Poe´s, The Raven.



It's apt that the program lists no set designer, but an installation artist - our surroundings are a magnificently eerie vision.

-Baz McAlister, The Courier Mail.






An emotional inner world; the dark constructed reality of what may be lived throughout the actors performance and the audience’s immersive experience. Presenting the collapse or emotional fragility of Edgar Allan Poe through visual poetics of space: his home.

3 tonne damp clumpy soil, 1.6km sculpture wire, assorted broken and used furnitures/books/stage props.
