Summertime by Charles L. Mee directed by Kim Weild at the Center for the Arts Theater, Wesleyan University, 2016
Section 1/4" scale
For this Charles L. Mee play, I designed a landscape that was specifically inspired by a skateboard park that functioned as a playground for the actors and brought a sense of centripetal movement to the stage. This landscape also incorporated the forest of white birch trees, as stipulated in the stage directions, made out of actual tree trunks, thereby creating a sense of verticality. For the projection designs, I created a series of slides that completed the composition of the space, while also looking at specific moments of interactivity between the staging and blocking, and projections to create a 3-dimensional effect between them, cued with the songs.
