THE MAKING OF TIS PITY SHE IS A WHORE: SET DESIGN

Directed by Selina Cartmell, Siren productions, Project Dublin 2011.
Costumes design: Gaby Rooney, Lighting design: Sinead McKenna; music composer: Conor Linehan.

A show about a film about a show….The set was somehow like inspired by the Andy Warhol’s factory, that youth and creativity of the then New York.

The Guardian:
....In Selina Cartmell's multimedia staging for Siren Productions, we watch clips of key scenes that have been filmed previously, or follow the Film Director's inner thoughts projected on to a sliding glass backdrop.
...Showing loving attention to design, choreography and music, the setting is updated from 17th-century Italy to the mafioso 1960s, with glamour and violence finely balanced. As the film's cast and crew create scenes from the play for the camera, the film that takes shape starts to fuse with the off-screen dynamics of the actors.
