Set designer Lez Brotherston has created toothsome costumes and set for Dracula, the next production from Northern Ballet Theatre to be premiered on 16 September. Graphic design is by Leeds consultancy PFB Design. Dracula will be dancing in a red velvet floor-length cloak decorated with eagles. ‘It’s a challenge to dance in as it’s really heavy,’ says an NBT spokeswoman. Not surprisingly, the sets have a Gothic feel, ranging from Dracula’s bedroom in Transylvania, to Whitby and London. Brotherston has designed Romeo and Juliet and A Christmas Carol for the NBT, and also received an Olivier nomination for Adventures in Motion Pictures’ Swan Lake. This is the first British ballet of Bram Stoker’s novel.
Etienne Bardelli has created the graphics for a Chevrolet Impala and Volkswagen camper van, which move around the vast country collecting local people’s experiences to be shared online.
