Let it not be said that I have never used fairy lights and festoons.
By Yve Blake for Spork London.
So this was my most recent production. Sweet Abandon, was an evening of food, conversation and mischief. Combining intriguing food combinations, dirty food secrets and food adventures.
Designer: Hannah Wastnidge
Lighting Designer: Joshua Gadsby
I’m currently working on this great project called ‘Sweet Abandon’
Yve Blake presents Sweet Abandon, an evening that celebrates the creative and reckless ways we eat when no one is watching. Two parts meal, one part game and all served with a garnish of good humour, prepare for a dining adventure in which you must choose between savoury and bravery at every turn. Dishes inspired by home-alone recipes and private food rituals will be served along with entertainment, discussion and good times. Dessert promises all-you-can-eat treats, if you dare to play.
Don’t miss this sugar high for all the senses.
Sweet Abandon is presented as part of Spork Food Monthly, an experience-sharing series on food and culture.

Long stressful day but we have made progress. Also got asked to work on a rather exciting project which I’m really looking forward to!
After my recent work on Beauty and The Beast, I’m once again assisting on an altogether more intriguing project…. a concert, described to me as “Rock band + Orchestra”
First meeting tomorrow! This will be quite a new experience for me…i’ve not really done concert lighting before.
We opened yesterday! Sadly ANOTHER VL was misbehaving which resulted in some very tricky moves to swap the unit out in the pit!
Dry tech today just dealing with truck moves and tidying up LX over the top. We’ve moved the swapped unreliable VL units to the pit! For some extra support in some of the effects. Things are starting to look good!
Now that the VLs have settled down we are starting to have issues with colour mixing on some of the Mac 700s we’re just hoping it won’t be a case of MacDeath!
Wet tech starts tomorrow. Expect blood.
Yup it has arrived, we had the lighting session today…it’s length was doubled by the complexity of the set (three large trucks that have to be moved into a rather wide range of positions) however after a couple to palette tidy ups I’m confident that we can make the show work! I’m getting quite snappy on the EOS now.
All that is needed now is to resolve the never ending issues with the VL3000Q’s…we’ve already managed to swap out 3 units and they only arrived on Friday!
So heres to a tech week devoted to never-ending truck moves and naughty naughty VLs!
See you on the other side!
The next few weeks and months are going to bring lots of new things into my life, I’m two days away from leaving home and two weeks from moving to London!
Also over the next two weeks I’m programmer/Assistant on a production of Beauty and the Beast, it’ll be a great opportunity to really home my programming skills on the EOS!
Also due to a series of strange events I am running the focus for a English Youth Ballet production in a week or two….excited but scared i’m gunna ruin someone else’s design :/
Oh an then of course I start at Central in October!
