American Theatre Magazine highlights Professor’s design

October 23, 2009

The October 2009 issue of American Theatre Magazine highlights Lewis & Clark College Associate Professor Michael Olich’s scene design process that supported Artists Repertory Theatre’s 2008 production of Sarah Ruhl’s Eurydice.

In their monthly “Production Notebook” section, the national publication focused on Artists Rep’s thrilling production design, with interviews with director Randall Stuart, costume designer Sarah Gahagan, and Olich, who remembers “As we tried to physicalize the space between Earth and Hell, to convey how the stability of both places is fractured we embraced the idea that in the eyes of the audience we might actually invert ‘what is up and what is down.’  Our goal was to disorient the audience from every knowing where they were - they had to listen to the characters to understand where they had landed.”
