A story of love, race and class, Julie is set in the kitchen of a London Townhouse. Set over the course of one night, the passing of time is shown through the changing sky, reflected by a mirrored floor.
Set in Clifton Lido, Otto – the whale – is described through different mediums. In the third act, he is revealed as a glowing lantern puppet, carried through the water.
Set at a party for the end of the world, the design uses an amalgamation of different styles, textures and materials. The way the costumes would behave under lighting and how it reacted to the other design elements was important.
