January 2020 - Independently Produced
This site-specific production took place in the living room of an actor's home. I used Bluetooth to connect to two speakers from QLab; producing site-specific sound effects. One was behind the couch at the center of the performance area and another was hidden in the doorframe to a hallway. My concept drew on PTSD - how this haunts the main character and creeps into her everyday life. I used the rattling of pills in a bottle, pages turning, sounds of the city, and sounds of war - mixed and interspersed to immerse the audience in the sound of the characters' strife.
