On the water-filled stage, Synetic’s visual poetry will bring Prospero’s magical island to life. A romantic drama of epic proportions emerges from the depths as spirits, monsters, witches, drunken fools and lithe lovers contort and cavort with all the passion and bravado you can imagine.
With The Tempest, Synetic presents the ninth installment in its renowned “Silent Shakespeare” series. Expect BIG things with this production: stunning set design complete with a water extravaganza, larger-than-life visual, acrobatics and the remarkably visceral experience Synetic is known for.
Directed by Paata Tsikurishvili
Multimedia projection samples from the production.
I also created the show trailer, teaser and organized the behind the scene video of making of this production. Scroll down the page to take a peak at some of the pre-production designs that I produced before rehearsals started.
A lot of work went into the pre-production phase exploring this unique world of The Tempest, and to define what projections can do. I dreamed big and simplified the design as the show evolved, in part due to technological constraints. I felt that the visual development work I did for the show were waste not to share, so here is a bit of it. Some of these are illustrated and some of it are mixture of digital collage with digital painting.
