Quite a unique project, we spent 9 weeks researching and developing a start of an adaptation of the novel The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner. The novel is split into 4 sections told by 4 narrators, so one of the languages of the piece that we worked with was playing out the 4 sections over 3 seating configurations (promenade, thrust, and traverse). The biggest challenge was to light three configurations and four separate sections with the constraint of 36 dimmers. I decided that the lighting rig needed to be minimal yet bold, and I think we somehow managed to pull it off, and with TWO dimmers to spare!
