Director Ashley Kelly Tata's take of Brecht's Good Person of Szechwan, translated by Tony Kushner, performed as a production of Columbia University's directing department, at Riverside Church Theater , in March 2012.
With scenery and lighting we explored an industrial look giving reference to today's factories and industrial campuses which also act as unofficial prisons of contemporary life especially for blue collar employees. We built a light wall which shined through the transitions throughout the play, and compliment the usage of tarp and pallets. Also we used the various modules of the wall throughout the play. Another big gesture was that the rig came down with the strip lights colored yellow, giving reference sodium vapor lamps, with the choreographed movement of the workers at the factory.
