Horseplay: or, A Fickle Mistress, A Protean Picaresque by Trav S.D.

Photographing the dress/tech of a show can sometimes provide wonderful ‘candid’ shots of the actors at work. I was glad

to be at LaMama last night for this experience. Here are some shots from the dress/tech of the show that opens on Valentine’s day!

Using the Dixon Place theater environment as part of the play was visually very exciting.

Sophie Nimmannit, Jan Leslie Harding and Chuja Seo played the ‘Something/Nothing’ characters.

The director Meghan Finn made good use of the audience risers here with Jocelyn Kuritzky.

The ‘Something/Nothings’ gather on the balcony glearing down at the cast on stage.

Jocelyn Kuritsky gets wrapped up in the sofa by the Something/Nothing characters.

The ‘spider’ created wonderfully by the hand of one of the puppeteers.

A visual bouquet for the mind and eyes. Words fall from the sky and out of the characters to awaken the audience in a playful way!!
