THE LEGEND OF THE NIGHTMARE BOX
These bastards are proving a hassel to make. We thought there was leftover hardboard at the Cochrane which we could use, but there isn't any more - so we made one prototype out of [yes, again, faithful reader] CARDBOARD. At first they looked alright, and then we painted them. But of course, paint makes things wet, and wet things bend. So, the one Nightmare Box we had was a bendy one. Not good. A solution was needed. We're turning these into a video installation instead, negating the need for performers to get inside the boxes on the night. Nice. Second thing - we did more paper macheing the other day. This, combined with the heat, has led to nasty things growing in our studio. Yes faithful reader, the mould (and flies) have returned! Hannah and I are right skanks.
