Check out these behind-the-scenes images of the set for Hamlet!
Our crew and design team is hard at work to create Hamlet’s Denmark on the
Wilma’s stage. As you’ll see in the pics, our design, envisioned by Matt
Saunders, incorporates various elements of Street Art, like
wheatpasting and graffiti. We are proud to work with Philadelphia-based
Street Artist CERA on the creation of our set. The lettering you see is
done by Juan Deminda.
Three of what’s ending up to be a 6ish layer screenprint/screenprint monotype. Keep posted to http://cerastreetart.bigcartel.com for purchase tomorrow morning. Peep the digital prints as well! Excellent archival prints, priced for the holidays! #cera #cerastreetart #screenprint #screenprintmonotype #reclaimed #repurposed #bigcartel
The Wilma’s productions of Hamlet and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead demonstrate Blanka Zizka’s evolving vision to create work around a
company of artists, incorporating training and ensemble building to
further develop the talents of the Philadelphia acting community. Prior
to the commencement of formal rehearsal, company members were involved
in training and workshops. NOW the company has come together to start
their work on Shakespeare’s greatest work, Hamlet.
Here are some shots from the rehearsal room!
They include: Actors Ed Swidey and Krista Apple-Hodge in the read-thru and a review of the design inspirations including a presentation by street artist CERA.
