Projection Design Samples
Choreographer Denise Armstead began working on her evening-length piece
“The Three Bonnies”, her goal was to bring together
two worlds – the world of dance and the world of horses. The
problem – how do you get a horse onstage? In this
work-in-progress, Perimeter uses interviews and footage to bring the
horse world into the theater. “It’s
Simple” combines video footage of two dancers and a horse on
the screen as the two dancers perform the same dance live on the stage.
Josh Cragun, co-artistic director of nimbus theatre, conceived of his
original play TV Men, he knew that a complex projection design would be
necessary. Perimeter Productions assembled a design plan for the show,
using video both on stacked TVs at the side of the stage and projected
onto the back scrim behind the actors. The video consisted of stills,
moving sequences, titles, and live feed from the stage to create the
various worlds of each section of the play.
