Topdog/Underdog

The second of our three theatrical productions inside the detention center was an adaptation of Suzan-Lori Parks’ Pulitzer Prize winning play “Topdog/Underdog.” The play included original songs (produced by teacher Andrew Brown), dance choreography (Crystal Stewart), and stage direction (Sean Turner). I was responsible for creating the set, which included:

(8) 8′ x 12′ painted canvases depicted scenes from the play, mounted to a PVC pipe structure 16′ x 48′ set on a corner as well as 2 wooden cars (front only) with screens behind them running footage of NYC streets.
