Concrete Chair by Will Coles
The world of 'Silent Disco' was influenced by the street art of Will Coles. He created a concrete sofa chair that became a key element of the set design.
'Design by Justin Nardella is inventive and iconic – simple.'
'The setting, by Justin Nardella, a newcomer to the Stables space, is an abstract inner-cityscape. A sweep of railing and a concrete ramp is backed by unkind cyclone wire fencing in which is cutely constructed (out of plastic drinking cups) the stylized skyline of Sydney's CBD…It's been given a deserved and fine production by Griffin and it's a scorcher'
‘Justin Nardella's design, a tilted berg of schoolyard corner backed by wire mesh, is effective and packs a touching visual surprise... This is a fine play, a fine production, and probably one of the small stage highlights of the year.’
