Research & Inspiration
Theatre is a visual medium, a tool to create art and story in three dimensional space. The elements and principles of design (line, shape, pattern, contrast, light, color, collage, etc) have directly influenced how I conceive work for the stage. I see the work I do as a collage: a thoughtful conglomeration of visual elements, images, ideas, and concepts, carefully crafted together to tell a story. The images included below spoke to me as I wrote and directed my thesis play, affecting the storytelling devices utilized, as well as the aesthetic of the piece.
