IDENTITY DESIGN / PHOTOGRAPHY / ART DIRECTION
S-27, written by UK playwright Sarah Grochala, was inspired by the history of Cambodia’s S-21 prison under the rule of the Khmer Rouge. Set in a dystopian future, the play tells the story of a photographer who must document dissenters who have rebelled against The Organisation’. The identity for the production speaks with this authoritarian, intimidating and aggressive tone. The photography shows a woman caught between two moments, two worlds – ‘The Organisation’ and freedom. The typography imprisons her and creates a barrier between her and the audience, obscuring her humanity and making her just another body to photograph.
