The Body Show

“The Body” is the winner of the Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award 2015 and was performed at the Barbican Pit

The Body is ‘a seat-shaking, soul-searching techno-futurist experience’ created by

Nigel Barrett and Louise Mari.

A few things I worked on for the show:

  • A system for controlling lights via heart rate monitors connected to audience members.

  • Seats covers to turn audience members into human joysticks for controlling sound and visuals.

  • Wireless dolls that responded to tilt and wireless controls from the control room.

  • Wireless computer network.
