Laramie Project

Lighting Designer

The Laramie Project was a Stage II production in the University of Minnesota Duluth's Dudley Experimental Theatre. The show is a story of different perspectives on the death of Mathew Sheppard. The main perspectives were the people of the town of Laramie, the perspective of the theatrical group who collected and recorded the stories, and finally the perspective of our audience watching it each night. As such the lighting was designed to be very off balanced where each audience member would have a different perspective of the show.
