For 3 weeks I joined the Giffords Circus team, living and working at Fennels Farm in the lead up to the opening night of ‘My Beautiful Circus’. As part of the art department I worked on the set and prop elements of the show as well as decor of the new big top tent. The theme for this year show was circus of the 1930’s, to celebrate 250 years of circus. Following the designs of Takis we created a luxurious set, that consisted of gold ribbon screening, gold rope swags, a metal frame structure with shimmering gold detailing, wood effect staging and hand painted ring boxes.
