Grateful to work with Muneer, a great person and athlete. I thought it might be fun to have him sprint across a shallow pool of water, so I built one. He was game to jump in and his fiancé Dominique helped to bring it together.
Football in a theater? I was blown away last night when I walked into Mixed Blood’s theater to find it transformed into a football stadium. Bleachers, score boards, a green stage and a dozen football players (actors) completed the scene. I was there to photograph the archive during a complete run of the play before it goes public this Thursday. I always consider photographing a theatrical archive akin to photographing a new sport in the dark while stumbling over chairs, well, (shhh not a football fan) this is close to that analogy. Mixed Blood is a great culture to be a part of, the show is amazing, and if you desire you can see it for free (just don’t mention my name) :). By the way, it’s about more than football.
So lucky to be working with every single person at Mixed Blood Theater. So much talent on stage and off makes this show a blast to photograph.
Great story, music, and dance. Check it out, it’s running the next few weeks!
