The Other Place nominated!

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…

Opening Night of The Other Place

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!

First Preview at the Lucille Lortel

Very excited for tonight’s first preview of The Other Place by Sharr White at the Lucille Lortel.  After months of research, design and development followed by a very intense (and rewarding!) week of tech in the theater, we’re getting our first audience tonight. I’m very proud of this show, it’s been a great collaboration with everyone.

ildi ! eldi

I spent some time with the French collective « ildi ! eldi » this past week, helping them document their great show Vice-Versa.  This trio is a super cool company, and when they come to your city do give them a look!

Botanica

Spent time with Jim Findlay and his new project Botanica, this week.  The show features Liz Sargent, Ilan Bachrach and Chet Mazur and it investigates sentience in plant life and much more.  It tickles the Tarkovsky bone in all of us.  Looking forward to the completed work!

Selective Memory

I had the chance to experience Selective Memory at The Chocolate Factory Theater last night, here in Queens.  It’s a bold meditation on image, light, and movement by Brian Rogers and Madeline Best, and I highly recommend checking it out.

Experienced Mallory Catlett‘s radical interpretation of Shakespeare’s Richard II last night at 14 Wall Street.  The re-imagined site-specific (neo)history played out high above the country’s financial center (31st floor!) and featured a brilliant performance by Peter Blomquist as the king.  I’m looking forward to seeing future incarnations of this piece!
