Part one of Tony Kushner's epic, pulitzer-prize-winning drama dissects the lives of a diverse group of characters living in New York City during the Reagan-era AIDS crisis of the 1980s. The play comments not only on the horrors of the disease and its effects on the human body, but also on the bredth of responses to its presence — between individuals and between socio-economic classes.
Throughout part one of Angels in America the characters' experiences become less and less grounded in real space and time. It is when the characters drift from the earthly plane to a more cerebral, otherworldly space that the sound design became a strong storytelling opportunity. Sound and music became a strong indication to the audience of the characters' departure from reality.
Directed by Annie Loui, this adaptation of Homer’s epic poem was designed as a movement workshop. My role involved a sound design that featured original compositions with several original songs and over 150 sound cues. This adaptation of The Odyssey has been developed and performed both at UCI and the Accademia dell'Arte in Arezzo, Italy.
I have been working on a series of devised movement workshops, based on the Stephen Mitchell translation of Homer’s Odyssey, with Counter-Balance Theatre (CBT) Artistic Director Annie Loui. The first and third workshops were produced in Irvine, California, in association with actors from the University of California, Irvine, Depar tment of Drama, and CBT company members. The second workshop was devised and produced with the Masters of Fine Arts Physical Theatre students at the Accademia Dell’arte in Arezzo, Italy.
