Set and Lighting Design

The screen and lighting design were created by Peter Mumford. The screen changes colour during the dancework and in the bottom right corner you can see a faint outline of the number 32.

The colours on the screen change the mood and dynamic of the work on the stage and complement the choreography.

Peter Mumford has also collaborated on a number of productions with Page, including 32 Cryptograms, Cinderella, Cheating, Lying, Stealing, The Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker.
