The great fashion and stage designer Hudda Chukri asked me to pitch in with some stage animations for the opera production she is currently working on.
Since the beginning of the year we have been working on a visual vocabulary, a type of imagery to visually accompany the production of “Weisse Rose” at Stadttheater Biel and Stadttheater Solothurn. I had an exciting day on Tuesday, when my visuals were being test-screened on the big stage in Biel for the first time. It’s enthralling to watch how the small singular components group and little by little piece together a wholesome creative concept.
Up until now, I haven’t had much insight into the world of theater. Imagine my fascination being backstage and looking over the shoulders of a committed team comprising director, stagehands, lighting technicians and media technicians. And to be able to assist and advise, too!
