Stupid F*cking Bird
The play Stupid F*cking Bird is a dark comedy that calls for a metatheatrical space. This is the process of how I combined classical and modern aesthetics with the vibrant jewel tones of a Basquiat painting to accurately reflect the complexities of the play.
I directed and staged a scene from a play called An Iliad. I wanted to create an immersive and tangible set. With a flickering fire barrel and stuffed dummies that the character set up to tell a tale and then ripped apart when she got caught up in her own story.
This play that I directed and staged was all about mixing the metaphorical with the literal. The main set piece was a giant book with turning pages with projections of the backdrops. It combined both the realism of a tangible book and the illusion of a world constructed of pen and ink.
