Night and Day (a new play by Charles Mee)

Category: Lighting Design

Design Statement

Night and Day a new play by Charles Mee, the world premiere
Night is loosely based on the Roman revenge tragedy, Thyestes, by Seneca. It includes excerpts from that play
Day is inspired by the story of Daphnis and Chloe as told by the poet, Longus.
In the design of both Night and Day, the primary concern was to create not a “set” but a space for performance. Both acts require the kind of large open space that a dance piece requires. It is up to props, objects, lights, and performers to suggest any shifts of time and locale without ever leaving the here and now of the theatre.
Night:
Autumn/winter: stark, barren, dark, bitter, interior, a black and white world.
Color and pattern inspired Lighting: Predominantly clear. Chiaroscuro of Baroque painting. Visible sources (overhead fluorescents, table lamps on floor). Light emitting from props and costumes.
Day:
Late spring/summer: warm, colorful, languid, exterior.
Color and pattern inspired by the Nabis painters (Vuillard, Serusier, Denis) wherein a forest floor may appear to be a carpet or a tapestry and where trees may be blue and grass orange. Clear sidelight picks out the costumes to keep them in white/tan tones against the colored background.
