NYU, Abu Dhabi

NYU Abu Dhabi produced “A Dream Play” by August Strindberg as part of their student-led main stage series. Evolution provided the scenic, drapery, technical and furniture requirements and liaised with the theatre team to build a temporary structure acting as a show venue within a multi-purpose hall. The students required scenic and technical elements designed to fit within the limitations of the venue whilst maintaining a visually striking appeal. Thousands of sheets of paper were adhered to set panels to achieve the unique texture of the main backdrop, supported by specialised lighting to help set the mood for each scene.
