The Music of Curtain’d Sleep

Music has always played a central role in Entita productions and choosing a musician is often one of the first decisions we make when starting to plan a new project.

Day 1 of R&D – “The undiscovered country”

Up until this point Curtain’d Sleep has only ever existed in ‘Safehouse 1’ in Peckham, as part of Basic Space Festival. Taking the piece out of a derelict Victorian house and converting it for a black box studio is the biggest creative challenge Entita has faced to date. Not only has this opened up huge design questions (which will be the subject of another post soon!) but the conversion will affect the whole tone of the show. Very few immersive shows have been reworked into more traditional studio performances, so to paraphrase Hamlet we are indeed stepping into “undiscovered country”.
