How Scenic Design is Affected by Organic Approaches to Theatre and Dance Productions
The Introduction overviews some of the challenges in working within a very loose and organic approach to design in theatre and dance productions. Chapter 1: Near Lifetimes discusses my first experience in working with a very fluid design concept and Chapter 2: Before the Horses Crash into the Ground, and then the Ground continues to discuss how the experience from Near Lifetimes influenced my approach to designing for dance.
Chapter 3: Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. goes into detail about how I learned to consider the theatre space in a less specific context and how to prepare for a rehearsal process that required a lot of contingency due to its fluctuating requirements. Chapter 4 discusses how my classroom experience prepared me to think quickly and without attachment to any one design idea and how to express conviction in my design choices.
