Phone call theories and observations from a recent trip:
The Porter calls Malcolm from the hotel lobby. Malcolm answers at the detective agency. He says something about a sister. The Porter tells him of a falcon that was hawk’d last Tuesday.
A few minutes later, the Porter calls Agnes. She happens to be in the detective agency and picks up. She says, “How did you know I was here?” The Porter tells her to come to the McKittrick Hotel. 
Later on, when she returns to the hotel lobby for the 2nd time in her loop, the Porter plays a trick on her. He dials a number from the counter and walks away. The phone in the booth across the room starts ringing. This scene is sometimes different dependent upon who is playing Agnes that night.

  1. She delivers Macbeth’s letter to Lady Macbeth, leaving it on the bathtub in their bedroom. She first claims it from the somewhat unwilling Porter in the hotel lobby. The letter sets Lady Macbeth’s machinations into motion.
  2. While Duncan is asleep in his bedroom, before he gets ready for the ball,…

Can Hecate and/or her witches see the audience?

One of Felix’s rules that we had to work with during the workshop I participated in was that you are only able to see the audience if you are crazy or if you’re dead.

During the creation process, that rule is hugely influential…

The taxidermist is surrounded by green, the colour of nature. It symbolizes growth and harmony and suggests stability and endurance. It is psychologically safe and physiologically healing. It is the most restful colour for the human eye to perceive.

His rooms are composed of analogous shades and mixtures of primary (yellow), secondary (green), and tertiary (brown) colours: the complimentary earth tones. Much of the taxidermy animals exhibit brown fur, the overheard and lamp lighting is a warm yellow, and the walls of his office are green as is his choice of dye colour for his one-on-one. The human eye is most sensitive to the yellow-green area of the visual spectrum, around 550 nanometers, which effortlessly draws the eye’s attention. Green is used sparingly in the McKittrick, and, if used at all, is presented in strong washes such as the colour change to green backlighting during the banquet. These factors successfully isolate the character and his spaces from all that surround him.

The lighting in his space is natural, as are most of the spaces associated with or primarily inhabited by non-supernatural characters. The lighting exhibits little movement and absolutely no dynamic changes, remaining stationary and stagnant throughout. In general, the lighting in Sleep No More conforms heavily to the pattern wherein naturalism lights scenes of realism and invasive stylized lighting choices and strong colours are utilized in moments of high intensity or scenes touched by a supernatural presence. I guess that’s why the lighting in the bathroom gets so freaky sometimes, since he shares it with a witch and all.
