HOVER FOR DESIGN STATEMENT
Coriolanus is the story of pride, power, and ruined reputation. Stark white light was used to emphasize the transparency of Coriolanus as a hollow leader. The white light played well with the shadow curtain, creating dramatic depth for the harsh battle sequences. To compliment the scenic elements of the broken and jagged structure, industrial work lights were used to emphasize the destructive, brash, apocalyptic world of the play.
