WISE FOOL'S CIRCUS LUMINOUS

set design, 2019

@Lensic Performing Arts Center, Santa Fe

Chaos Luminous, co-written and co-directed by Nandita Dinesh and Tara Khozein, was the sixteenth annual Circus Luminous production in Wise Fool Santa Fe’s history. It brought Wise Fool’s young adult pre-professional circus performers together with professional jugglers and aerialists from around the world, and staged an imaginary trade show in which four political visions competed for audience reaction. I worked with the directors to develop prop ideas, and made a group of props that performers used — a cube that divided and puppets that performers balanced en masse. I hired and worked with a maker/engineer to create illuminated props used during intermission performances amongst the audience.
