Die Verraaier (Stage Design). 2003
The stage design was for three performances of a Passion Play at The Aula, University of Pretoria.
Throughout the musical and choir performance, manipulated digital images of my paintings and pastel drawings were projected onto the full backdrop creating monumental images for the stage. The point of departure was selected works from my Masters' exhibition, which dealt with the theme of the sublime.
The changes between scenes where created as animated transformations of one image into another. The images below reflect only a selection from the show. I furthermore designed the costumes, invitation and poster.
