Between 2003 and 2004, Miriam – the designer of Bang Bang Bang – worked as a humanitarian worker in eastern DRC, based in Bukavu and carrying out projects and assessments in Ituri, North and South Kivu and travelling to Kindu, Kisangani and Kinshasa. Travelling with her camera, she sought to capture some of the vibrancy , difficulties and resilience of the communities she worked with.

These formed a starting point for the design concept of Bang Bang Bang, and informed the material, colour and composition of the final scenography.
