At one together

Thursday 15 November 2018

Our Theatre is a community based schools programme run by Shakespeare’s Globe. 80 actors from 4 schools in Southwark came together to present a one-hour production of Shakespeare’s ‘As you like it’ inside the Sam Wannamaker Theatre.

Premm were asked to design the creative for this event, looking at the poster, programme...

The Rinse Cycle

Following our rebranding work for Unexpected Opera, we were pleased to attend a performance of their latest production, The Rinse Cycle – ‘Wagner’s Ring cycle conditioned with comedy and shrunk to 2 hours’ … and set in a laundrette! In shrinking the (XXL) cycle of four operas – usually around 16 hours long – to one evening, Artistic Director Lynn Binstock set out to ‘create an entertaining, high-quality, low-risk introduction’ to Wagner’s Ring that would ‘reach out to people...

The Green-eyed Monster

Wednesday 11 March 2015

Premm were commissioned for a fourth consecutive year to create the core marketing image for the Playing Shakespeare production, the 2015 flagship education project for the Globe Theatre. The brief was to have a World War 1 styled visual for Othello which would engage with the young audience, and help them enjoy this classic tale of jealousy and betrayal. The identity was applied to the programme, posters, flags, advertising and branding of the theatre’s external walls using a brick wrap technique,...

A musical folk tale

Thursday 23 October 2014

As part of Premm’s ongoing relationship with Mahogany Opera Group we were asked to work on the design materials for their latest production – Brundibár. This playful score – to be performed by members of the Southbank Sinfonia and local musicians – leaps between Czech folk tunes, lively marches, polkas and waltzes. What makes this production different is it has a cast of young performers from Jubilee Opera. Brundibár was written in 1938 by Jewish Czech composer Hans Krása and was...

Candlelit drama at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse

Tuesday 14 January 2014

This weekend I had the joy of going to the new indoor theatre at Shakespeare’s Globe – the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. The interior provided a delight to all the senses, from the smell of the candles, to the intricate hand painted ceilings and the authenticity of the recreated jacobean architecture.The intimacy of the playhouse complemented itself perfectly to the macabre plot of ‘The Duchess of Malfi’. With the only light source being that of the candles, the cast were able to use...
