Claire Goodwin, my very talented sister, will be presenting a showcase reading of Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Angels in America with her ensemble of actors & artists this coming June. The performance will be the culmination of a six week residency at the Gold Coast Arts Centre. I – along with several other usual suspects – have been drafted onto the creative team to develop the thematic video interstitials for the project when it goes into full production later in the year.
To get the ball rolling we spent some time playing with a few visual ideas for the promotional collateral using material I dragged up from my New York archive. Working through the imagery we began to see how some of these ideas might already hint at the visual mood and aesthetic tone of what may follow. It is a dark, troubled world Krushner’s America. It’s good to be back!
