SIA

I am excited to announce a fun project I recently had the opportunity to work on; show posters for a small, albeit successful, theatre company, The Bridge Theatre Company. I was pleased to have the chance as I have always wanted to get more work in this field. The first show, (which is actually a reading workshop of the show) titled “Sia”, is taking place this coming weekend.

Prior to making the image I was fortunate enough to see an early reading of the play which really helped build the visual background. The story is full of metaphors and symbols making it quite a joy to illustrate. More about the story below:

“Sia” tells the fast and furious story of a former child soldier who takes a Canadian university student hostage in a Liberian refugee camp in West Africa, SIA is a challenging look into the complex relationship between North America and Africa.

This relationship of compassion and hostility between the characters of the story is what the image is intended to capture.

I highly encourage anyone who is in the area to check out the reading. It’s a hell of a story and from what I hear, will have free beer on hand. Hey ah!

I am also working on the next play, “Greenland”, for The Bridge, which will make it’s officially debut at the New York Fringe Festival. Details to come later.
