Design Statement

WONDER IF was a student-devised original work that comically explores scientific ideas, including the oceans, trees, bubbles, and evolving theories of Light over history. The script was devised with student actors during the prior academic term, based on their research, improvisation, and experimentation. This script changed up until 2 weeks prior to opening.

The production was arranged as a series of WAVES - a continuing history of the understanding of Light- alternating with PARTICLES - small vignettes including clown interludes, puppets, and scientific demonstrations.

The Light story was portrayed in white-toned period costumes that set each chapter in a specific context. The smaller vignettes were played in more colorful modern clothing.

The production had numerous quick changes, so the modern clothing needed to fit under the period garments, and modern shoes would show in period costumes. This show also toured rural Oregon schools without a costume crew, so the cast was responsible for costumes care and quick changes.

The show's centerpiece was an exploration of the still-mysterious oceans. To create puppets, I took plastic water bottles and other recyclables - items that often end up in trashpools in the oceans - to create schools of fish and glowing creatures.
