Snatch Paradise is the first international Gemeinschaft Dogs production. After a limited preview season in Sydney it heads to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with an all Australian cast. I looked after all of the technical production for the Sydney season, including designing the burlesque warehouse gala premiere at Fraser Studios. The Sydney season was successful in raising nearly $7000 to go towards sending the show to England, which is quite an achievement considering the large amount of technical production we put into the show.
Whilst I’m not going overseas with the cast I’ve had great fun supporting them. We had an incredible response in Sydney and even if they don’t have a top lighting designer with them (they do say I’m modest) I’m sure they will make an impact in Edinburgh. Head over to the G-Dawgs website for more info.
Check out the production report for pictures as well as lurid descriptions of the technical challenges involved in the project.
