Festen was a challenging project with just three weeks preparation. It is set in Denmark in the 1990's and was entirely sourced. With graphic sex scene, fight scenes, the use of fake blood and real food it was an exciting challenge getting the costumes clean and mended before each performance. I particularly learned a lot about black tie and men's suits during this project.
