Projection Design for Theatre
RED EARTH is a five year graphic novel and theatre investigation resulting in the world premiere of a new play, and the launch of its companion piece: a graphic novel illustrated by by GMB Chomichuk. The play is performed in an illustrative aesthetic where the set becomes the pages of a graphic novel.
As earth self-destructs, the audience witnesses the final effort of the human species’ survival: three astronauts sent to start over on Mars. While each has their own reason for accepting the mission, none are prepared for the consequences that await them on the red planet. A story of legacy, discovery and what makes us human.
