Date: Jun 01, 2003

At its 2003 Directing Symposium, SDCF hosted a panel featuring the design team from Theater Mitu: Artistic Director Ruben Polendo, composer and shadow mask designer Jef Evans, costume, mask and puppet designer Miranda Hoffman, lighting designer Ryan Mueller and set designer, puppet designer and choreographer Scott Spahr. The discussion centers around Theater Mitu's methodology, in which they investigate a theatrical vocabulary through myth and tradition using a company of artists who participate in many different aspects of the process. A few of the many topics include the blurry lines between design worlds, the vocabulary of design and sharing of ideas, and the relationships between designers and actors, and designers and the audience. This conversation provides a unique perspective on theatre-making that will inspire any artist or audience member!
