The Language Archive
Vanderbilt University Theatre, 2019
The Language Archive is a play about characters who struggle to make connections to the people around them. The fragmented world of the space is populated by those elements that were essential to illustrate the places Julia Cho calls for in the script. Clear composition and color choices helped to support these locations, and to clarify the moments of fantasy in the play. Sound helped to fill out the dramatic world through sound effects, music, and a symphony of languages.
