One Night Only: Dito & Aeneas
When Dito & Aeneas, the one-of-a-kind opera-cabaret mash-up starring Stephanie Blythe and Martha Graham Cracker, graces the TLA stage, it will be designed by none other than Machine Dazzle. The "conceptualist-as-artist" known for his stunning, clever costuming and performance art (like his work with the great Taylor Mac) let us dive behind the scenes just weeks before the show as he created outrageous props and set pieces.
Machine painted and framed royal portraits of fictional queens to hang, salon-style, on set, and built large, glowing constellations to create a night sky in the TLA. Throughout the work space, we found plenty of sparkling props ready for some audience participation, too. For what, exactly? You'll have to wait and see!
