Wild Boar had its North American premiere with this production. It involved cinematic transitions and a noir palette that raised tension and told a story of media, truth, and social hirearchy. The set utilized rear-projection screen as a representation of a modern glass curtain wall. I used two ultra-short throw projectors to cover both the upstage wall - including two doors - and the stage right wall which was on a thirty degree angle.
Media was still images that established location as well as several video sequences for the more ethereal scenes.
