MARQUÉS- A NARCO MACBETH: Scenic Design and Process
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.
