Julius Caesar - Scene Design Concept
For Julius Caesar I got to work with director Roger Smart who brough a distinct style to this production based on facist icons. I wanted to enhance the monolithic qualities of architecture yet enable front and back projections of color and shadow. My desire to show Brutus' army marching into the space really set the tone for the geometry of the design. The scenery was multipurpose as well, with the colonnade of architectural "trees" being taken apart piece by piece to become weapons until there was only one portion of a "tree" left standing. The silk banners were ripped down and used as "blood".
