Designing Propaganda Swing

In this video, Designer Libby Watson reveals more about the vision behind her stunning radio-studio set design for Propaganda Swing, her research process and the challenges of bringing the unique landscapes of the 1930s Berlin jazz-scene to life on stage! Propaganda Swing throws a spotlight on the gripping true story of 'Charly and his Orchestra'. Featuring a fantastic swing band live on stage, this enthralling show reveals the characters behind the story of how some of the greatest German jazz musicians of the day entered into a Faustian pact with the Fascists -- they could keep playing their beloved music at the price of seeing it corrupted for evil. Propaganda Swing makes its U.K premiere at the Belgrade Theatre from Sat 13 Sept - Sat 26 Sept.
