With an education in the performing arts, Helen Adie was inspired by a production she directed at the Edinburgh festival in 2002

"I find the clown-like, Pierrot figure very mysterious - somewhat child-like, and both nervous and daring at the same time. In this piece, I am playing with the contrasts in lighting that theatre offers, and the intrigue of a figure not fully revealed to the audience."

Helen's desire to explore dramatic tension offers viewers striking contrasts and experimentations with light and dark, angle and focus, specific to that of a theatre practitioner.
