In celebration of the kickoff of Trinity Repertory Theater’s fall season we took over the side of their building for three days.
We wanted to draw both the performance that we see onstage at the theater — which took the form of a strange story about a large puppet capturing a woman in a jar — as well as the intricate performance of stage crew, set-makers, costumers, and technicians that work behind the scenes to make the magic happen. Below, you can see a fanciful interpretation of the under-workings of the theater as the gears and pulleys that bring the puppet above to life.
Below you can see the tiny lift we used to create this piece. Normally it is put to use changing lighting setups inside.
