This really will put Newcastle on the map as a forward thinking city within the entertainment sector”
Award winning Costume Designer Paul Shriek has welcomed the challenge to create costumes that are both functional and aesthetically outstanding for The Purple Peacock, Newcastle. “We are delighted to be working with the team from I-Stage Group on this wonderful concept. After a recent visit to the venue I was stunned by the sumptuous decor and its colour pallet, it is a fantastic source of inspiration for fabrics and overall design. We are currently in the process of making costumes to create a visual feast of 'Carnival and Fiesta' for what promises to be a wonderful residency in my home city. It is great to see venues evolving to bring new concepts and experiences and 'spectical' into the heart of Newcastle.”
I-Stage Group show producers Gemma Waite and Megan Conway have been tasked with creating this immersive production. The pair have worked together on multiple projects and are thrilled to be involved.
