Designing a festival of eight plays can be a daunting task; eight directors, eight design teams, and eight independent stories that need to be told. Couple that challenge with breaking the plays up with a series of short films, finishing the show every night with a different musical act , and adding an environmental design for a space that is at once elegant and technically complex, and you have the Crown Point Festival. The result is the kind of design project most LD's would love to take on.
I'm thrilled to be sharing my design experience as it happens with the Live Design community. In the coming weeks and months you can expect entries chronicling the collaborations, design decisions, and gear selection as I work my way to opening night.
I hope you'll check in often and I'd love to hear your thoughts along the way.
