Assistant Scenic Designer
A spliced together investigation of Euripides' 2500-year-old tragedy, this physically driven performance follows Dionysus plotting punishment for those who have denied the god's divinity. Combining movement, vocals, and text, Bacchae examines how we find group catharsis, what is abused when the true desire to transcend the self lowers our self-defense, and what forces may be necessary to achieve a different future.
As the assistant scenic designer, I worked with the scenic designer to ideate, create, and realize the scenic elements of the show. Throughout the process, I helped pull various research images, created physical and digital paint tests and mockups, assisted in creating the scenic model, and helped to fabricate and paint the center platform and various mannequins.
