The Anarchy and the Ecstasy Set Design

  • theatrical design

For the record release concert of The Anarchy and the Ecstacy I was contracted to design a stage show worthy of a debut of a new album.

Wanting to keep a close tie with the album itself, I decided to work with the most obvious decorative elements. I designed a set of flat shapes, that, when lit properly, would replicate the design of the album, led construction on these shapes, and did arrangement on stage. I also worked tightly with the Lighting Director to design specific cues and time them with the show.

The entire timeframe for this project from first discussions until teardown was under a week.
