This is a planned image created a month before the world premiere of In The Time of Butterflies. The play is inspired by the true story of the Dominican Republic’s Mirabal siblings underground resistance. I loved working with Thallis, and look forward to seeing the performance.
So happy to photograph this show for Penumbra. An amazing cast, crew and director. The show is an emotional spectrum of African American life at the beginning of the Twentieth century. The show runs through mid April 2013.
This play is fast paced, it felt like I was photographing hockey with all the fast physicality and verbal barbs. Mark Valdez, the actors, and tech assembled a tight engaging show. Always a Pleasure to work with the People at Mixed Blood Theater.
This is a test for a image that I have wanted to do for a long time. I love the idea of using water as a element in my photographs. My goal was to create a conceptual image that reflected the story of family dealing with mental illness for a production at Mixed Blood Theater. Thanks to daring Brie and my good friend Chris for running with me through the logistics of this cold water production.
