the night library

The Night Library is an immersive theater production that occupies libraries after the sun sets. The 2019 show was created by a supercollaboration of artists and one architect. It took place in a historic Carnegie library over two nights as part of the Northern Spark Arts Festival in Minneapolis. The script, translation, and performance were produced by an artistic team from a variety of media backgrounds. This sketch for a giant papier mâché monster housed stuffed organs and an actor who burst out at the finale. I led design and construction for the set in all areas including lighting and scenic fabrication (wood, cardboard, fabric, papier maché). Components were built off-site at another library and assembed/disassembled before each show by a team of artists, librarians, and volunteers.
