A heart to heart with… sound designer Chris James 25/11/2013

1. If you could have anyone’s heart, whose would it be and why?

I am very happy with my own. We have been through a lot together.

2. What is your role on In Doggerland? How did you get involved?

I am the sound designer for the production. After meeting Adam and Hannah at Mountview Academy I started working with Box of Tricks in 2005 and have been an Associate Artist of the company since 2006.

3. What does home mean to you?

This is something that I have thought a lot about recently. I grew up in South Africa, spent most of my adult life in the UK and now live in Oman. But it is hard to pin point what home means to me because I have spent so much of my life on the move. I suppose home is where my wonderfully understanding girlfriend is. When I’m with her, not matter where in the world, that feels like home. Not sure if I answered the question…..

4. Who is your favourite character and why?

Linus. He put his life on hold for his sister. When she needed someone to help her and support her he was there. That is love. Love makes us better humans.

5. What was the last photo you took? 

Backstage at the Royal Opera House Muscat. This is the rear view of a giant mirror used in a production of La Traviata.
