Combined readings of Walter Benjamin and Christopher Lasch make for an interesting afternoon of thinking. Time passes, time is passing, time passes. Perhaps it’s better to consider the idea of Art instead of Love, though the idea of Self did cross my mind as well.
Out in the desert this week with Jon Weiss, cruising along Route 66 gathering additional photography and video assets to complete the Temporary Distortion film. We have a packed schedule and 100+ degree weather to contend with… should be fun!
Spending the week out in Los Angeles with my TCG peers for an interesting week of conference activities and conversations. We’ve seen some shows at Radar LA and debated innumerable hot topics. Looking forward to Julie Taymor’s appearance on Sunday.
Making great progress with Temporary Distortion this week on our new stage production, NEWYORKLAND. Keep your eyes peeled for more information on performances coming up soon. We’ll have some cool t-shirts and merch for sale soon, as well…!
I’m thrilled to share the news that Sharr White’s play, ‘The Other Place’ directed by Joe Mantello (for which I recently designed the video projections) was NOMINATED for 3 LUCILLE LORTEL OFF-BROADWAY THEATER AWARDS for directing, acting, and sound design! It’s fantastic news, and one day there will be a category for projection design…
After a fantastic run of previews with great audiences and incredible performances by Laurie, Dennis, Aya, and John, the show officially opens tonight. I hope you get the chance to see it while it’s at the Lortel, it’s a captivating piece of theater – and one of my favorites that I’ve ever designed. MCC Theater produces the best new theater in NYC, without a doubt!
Filming is moving along! We’ve shot 4 scenes, and we’re headed toward more in the coming weeks. It’s exciting to see this production coming together after years of work on the stage production. If you’re interested in finding out more about the film, check out the website here.
