Abstract

ABSTRACT

MARQUÉS- A NARCO MACBETH: Scenic Design and Process

AUSTIN KOTTKAMP

Theater is developed when several creative disciplines come together in

collaboration to make a cohesive piece of art. In this thesis I will explain the process

of scenic design using my design of Marqués, a new play, directed by Erik Pearson. I

will start by taking the reader through each step of my scenic design process to

illustrate what designing entails and how a final design is achieved. This will

demonstrate that when obstacles arise (due to visual or practical complications) their

resolution is a large part of the collaborative process. By explaining the steps of my

scenic design process and highlighting aspects of collaboration I demonstrate how

they result in a unified theatrical production.
