The Old Vic Community Company

Under the artistic leadership of Kevin Spacey, Old Vic New Voices, The Old Vic’s outreach programme, has built a reputation for its large-scale community theatre productions.

In 2012 they launched their most ambitious project yet. Taking place across three years, The Old Vic Community Company would work with over 250 people from across London, creating new plays each focusing on an issue particularly relevant both in London but also society as a whole.

Housed discussed the housing shortage and was staged in-the-round at The Old Vic. Ages dealt with how we provide care to an ageing population and was staged at The Old Vic Workrooms (an old school building in Bermondsey).

I created the image to accompany Ages pieced together from various photographs of the London skyline and the Milky Way, the aim being to create an image which had a relationship with the project from the previous year which featured an aerial image of London by Marc Khachfe.

A show programme which followed the same template as for the main-house shows was designed for both productions.

I also designed and implemented the artwork into a range of online media, including HTML email campaigns.
