Weaving a Tempest

This project was a collaboration with the UCI (University of California Irvine) production "Living in the Tempest" directed by John Crawford in 2018. The project was a continuous analysis and refiguring of William Shakespeare's The Tempest. Taking inspiration from the novel itself, the relationship between humans was the focal point to this project.

Tempest as a Net
This piece portrays the connection and tension amongst the characters within the nature. It allows to reflect both the movements on scene as well as behind the scene; through different ways of interaction. With a central force, the net represents the power of tempest/Prospero acting over the people.
