Advanced design studio.

Professor Michael McGarty

As the final project for the semester, we read The Invention of Love by Tom Stoppard. An interesting intellectual meditation on the origin of life as seen in flashbacks and movement through the life A.E. Houseman, a real life poet.

The design provides the practical movement of actors on and off the stage for the various acts in the play, and also comments on the notions the play presents about life and death and the lessons one might learn if able to look back after "crossing over" the river Styx.
