In the early 2000s, as a recent graduate, I was given an opportunity to work with Alyson Campbell on Lachlan Philpott's (at the time) newly-completed play 'Catapult'. It was my first sound design for theatre. I look back on it now and cringe, but it was a formative experience - I didn't know it at the time, but the friends and colleagues from 'Catapult' would go on to make fantastic work again and again. In a sense, I pottered along in their wake, occasionally crossing paths on projects.
In 2013, Campbell asked me to be involved in "The Trouble With Harry". In her direction and Philpott's writing, I could reach back to the earliest part of my career. In performers like Dion MIlls, who plays 'Man', I'm working with someone who was there in 'Catapult' and I have since worked with regularly at Red Stitch. I studied at VCA with Eugyeene, I met our SM, Harriet, while doing odd jobs at Dancehouse several years ago. My (self-described) 'systems bitch', Geoff, is the same mouthy lug that barrelled through VCA shows as an undergrad when I was a confused postgrad.
Joining the creative team for "The Trouble With Harry" was an incredible opportunity for me, the kind of opportunity that comes very rarely to artists working in the performing arts: to revisit my working relationships at almost every stage of my career, to reflect on my work and see how I've changed.
