Lighting designer Jennifer Tipton introduces us to The Tempest, by William Shakespeare. He brings to life a story of love, revenge, righteousness, despair, hope and wisdom. The themes highlighted in the production are mirrors, shadows and dreams, for the island in The Tempest, like a stage, is a place for dreaming. Lessons make connections to these concepts through the techniques of mirroring, examination of some of Shakespeare’s most well-known quotations, and experience with the poetry and rhythms of sonnets through choral speaking. Themes: Transformation, Power of Nature.
