Conversation Drawings

In December last year, I was the production designer for Vakomana Vaviri Ve Zimbabwe (or Two Gentlemen of Verona) at the Oval House Theatre. The two actors drew on their experiences of growing up in Zimbabwe and during rehearsals, we did a nice little project which involved sitting down with pencils and biscuits and describing places from home. I then redrew and screenprinted the initial sketches, trying to piece together someone else's experience using the things that were familiar to me. These are the strange landscapes that came out of that gap in communication.

The one above was actually done with my friend Miguel...I also had a go at making a pop-up.

Two Gents Productions have just done a residency in Harare and have lots of exciting things coming up, here's a link to their website.
