Here are a few photos to commemorate the very successful Fierce Backbone workshop production of Jan O’Connor’s new play “Cleo’s Girls”, a reworking of Anthony and Cleopatra though the famed female pharaoh’s handmaidens. Equal parts comedic and probing, the cast gave excellent performances, and I was really happy with how my set designs integrated seamlessly with Brandon Baruch’s lighting and Lauren Tyler’s costumes. Filling up the Lex Theater for two weekends, this production had little to apologize for in terms of quality or attendance. Pretty good for a “workshop”!

This past July I was honored to work with NY based puppeteers Tom Lee and Matt Acheson, LA based video artist Jeff Burke and composer Jonathan Snipes, and writer/director Jared Stein on a new puppet project in development based on the writings of Stanislaw Lem. After two weeks of morning to evening work in an almost unlit space behind the main stage of the Rhodopi Dramatichen Theater in Smolyan, Bulgaria, what came out was a performance that perhaps even the often cynically minded Lem himself would have been proud of.
