Another collaboration with the Mad Men, and one of my proudest moments as a designer. Upon learning that the play would be set in a "warehouse" decorated by the tribe, my instinct was to forego many design conventions. Namely, I placed almost every instrument on the theatre floor. Only a "moon" and some aerial dance sculpting remained overhead. The result was a directional, grungy, asymmetrical dance plot that energized the production. The snow and bubbles helped, too!
