Selected projects:

Party People


Universes and Liesl Tommy created this one of a kind theater event supported by a superb creative team and cast. The play, which is interspersed with musical numbers has an unsual structure and chronology. It required inventive visual support to be true to the director's and Universes' intentions.  Original imagery, historical quotes and discrete variations of live camera feeds are utilised to evoke time, location, purpose.

Mary Page Marlowe

A collaboration with Steppenwolf theater for Tracy Lett's new play about an ordinary Ohio accountant. Directed By Anna D. Shapiro, the play's unsual structure and chronology required inventive visual support to be true to Lett's objectives. Original Imagery is utilised to evoke time and location as well as to create a subtext during the various transitions.

A Confederacy Of Dunces

World premiere of Jeffrey Hatcher's stage adaptation of O'Tool's Pulitzer winning cult novel at the Huntington theater in Boston. Projections provide New Orleans grit and character for Ignatius O'Reilly's character as portrayed by Nick Offerman.

Svadba

Another collaboration with Ted Huffman, Zack Winokur: This time at the opera festival in Aix En Provence for Ana Sokolovic's spellbinding one act a capella opera "Svadba". Subtle projected shapes are combined with Marcus Doshi's lighting to shape the architecture of the playing space in order to create a beautiful understated setting that lets the six woman's characters and voices inhabit the stage with maximum support and minimal obstruction.

Hydrogen Jukebox

In the minimalist staging of this Skylight Music Theatre production lighting and projection are tightly intervwoven to define spaces and locations as well as  light the singers in Ted Huffman's and Zack Winokur's bold production. Text from Ginsbergs poetry is shown in many variations to connect Glass's music with the words of the poet without appearing like surtitles.

Conducted by Viswa Subbaraman

Directed by Ted Huffman and Zack Winokur

Lighting: Carrie Cavin

A Midsummer Night's Dream

Julie Taymor’s production was conceived as a “fantasia of light and shadow”. Projection is tightly intervwoven with lighting and set elements. The design features starkly contrasty imagery that borrows its appearance from traditional silhouettes, cut outs as well as real flowers, ferns, roots and branches. The surfaces consist of moving fabrics, wall surfaces and thin air. All projected elements move, sway, rise or fall, blur or sharpen, appear and disappear to give the design a dream like quality.

Directed by Julie Taymor

In The Garden Of Dreams

This show intertwines intimate solo piano and vocal works of Johannes Brahms and Arnold Schoenberg with light and projections on a set designed as both sculpture and surface.

Conceived and directed by Sarah Rothenberg
