Vanderbilt University Theatre, 2018
Sarah Ruhl's adaptation of Virginia Woolf's Orlando moves fluidly through space and time, encompassing country estates, a Turkish harem, a ship at sea, and a department store as the title character moves from the 15th through the 20th century. The set for the production served to facilitate that fluidity with built in "furniture" covered with white fabric to allow for painting with light. With the dawn of the modern age, the set's organic shapes were sharpened by revealing trusswork and an art deco inspired elevator.
