Building A Voice of One Delight

One of the first challenges of putting on my production of A Voice of One Delight turned out to be the construction of the set. Seventy cardboard archive boxes formed a back wall onto which a range of video designs by Adam Young were projected, to startling and beautiful effect. However, the first task was to build the boxes. That turned out to be surprisingly difficult as, in traditional fashion, no instructions were supplied. Evidently it’s so simple that none are required. Fifteen minutes of Krypton Factor-style agonising and a lot of paper cuts later (who knew cardboard could be so vicious?) we had finally worked it out.
