Josephine Sculpture Park
Sculpture: The Crucible – Doug Schatz
This first year was an all-female version of Macbeth in which the four elements were lifted up and the world of the three sisters was normative. Live fire torches provided the lighting as the sun set.
2012 The Tempest
Sculpture: The Clarity Vehicle – Mollie Rabiner
Year two brought the inherent power and magic of the island to the foreground, with the sculpture doubling as the ship in scene one and becoming the seat of the island's magic for the rest of the play.
Sculpture: Make It Writhe – Andrew Marsh
The first year that the sculpture was commissioned, these sculptures embodied the tension between organic love and sophisticated Romance; the production's visuals were inspired by Medieval tapestries and Romance literature.
Sculpture: Threshold – Melanie VanHouten
Exploring the liminality between the human form and the art form, the production lifted up the seasonal, natural cycle of redemption and renewal.
