Design Statement

Brave New World: The Musical was a world premier at NC Stage in Asheville, NC. Thomas Caruso (director) and I collaborated to create world for the musical based off of Aldous Huxley’s novel, which is rich with backstory and conventions that enhance the book of the musical.

There are two major societies explored in the musical, which consisted of the World State and the Savage land. Visually, we wanted the two worlds to contrast as much as possible, especially since we visit various locations in both worlds. Being that we were in a very small space, we landed on a sterile nightclub feel, which was heavily influenced by the techno, upbeat music in the World State. The Savage Land’s music had more of an acoustic and calmer feel, which led to a more textured, classic environment.

The production’s video design, collaborated with CJ Barnwell included animated logos, live video, time lapses, and pre recorded videos. The concept behind the video design mirrored the scenic design concept as did all aspects of the production including LED lighting for the World State, and more traditional incandescent fixtures for the Savage Land.
