Angels In America; A Gay Fantasia on National Themes Part One: Millennium Approaches

 Credit: Robert Mallin was the Lighting designer for the Concordia Theatre Departments production of Angels in America A Gay Fantasia on National Themes Part One: Millennium approaches staged at the DB Clarke Theatre in Montreal November 2014.

Tony Kushner's Angels in America is a wonderfully written play that weaves together moments of fantasia and reality. Much like the Names Memorial Quilt project which was ongoing during the writing of Angels in America; The play is written in fragments that are sewn together into a cohesive quilt, immortalizing the stories and climate of the AIDS crisis. The play offers hope for change and the future, but only through individual and personal struggle and pain. The design team approached this piece with the aforementioned themes of fragments, struggle, fantasia, reality and time.

Far+Away+004.jpg

Far Away

"Far Away" by Caryl Churchill deals with topical themes about war, government control, corporate enterprise, marriage, gender, art and, our lives as proletarians.
I first designed on Far Away as a set design, and in a future class, revisited the project with lighting concepts.

End Game

"End Game" was a set design concept I created during my second year at Concordia. The liminality of the space the characters inhabit along with my intuitive artistic response to the play lead me in the direction of a sunken ship, in a fishbowl.

Albertine en Cinq Temps

"Albertine en Cinq Temps" by Michel Tremblay was the first designs I ever created for a play. The class required we design every aspect of the design, set, lights, props and costumes. I instantly found myself drawn toward space and light, and this helped me focus the remainder of my university education.

My Bedroom

Students where asked to survey their rooms in as much details as possible, remove a wall, and turn it into a set. Then to produce accurate drafting and construction drawings, as well as a maquette showing that construction.

Jaill+Break002.jpg

Jail Break

"Jail Break" was the result of a drafting class. The final assignment called for the advanced drafting of one of our own previously conceived set designs, or a professional set design. Opting out of both these options, I found inspiration for a fresh concept and created a digital 3D maquette of the idea. From their I proceeded with the final intention of the class, and produced the required drafting.

The concept was derived from a three block cartoon I saw, showing a prisoner reading in his cell. As the blocks progressed, the cell became inhabited with imaginative things, such as unexplained shadows and monsters in toilet! Taking this idea of freeing the body through imagination, I pushed the idea further by bringing it into the real world. I furthered the imaginative moments by having the walls physically fly away themselves as well.

Crow Blacker than ever004.jpg

Crow Blacker Than Ever

This project required the student to read four poems and respond to them artistically through drawing, sculpture or painting. From those 'emotional' artistic responses, the student had to choose one, and develop it into a space. I chose "Crow Blacker than Ever" by Ted Hughes.

When God, disgusted with man, 
Turned towards heaven. 
And man, disgusted with God, 
Turned towards Eve, 
Things looked like falling apart. 
But Crow . . Crow 
Crow nailed them together, 
Nailing Heaven and earth together - 
So man cried, but with God's voice. 
And God bled, but with man's blood. 
Then heaven and earth creaked at the joint 
Which became gangrenous and stank - 
A horror beyond redemption. 
The agony did not diminish. 
Man could not be man nor God God. 
The agony 
Grew. 
Crow 
Grinned 
Crying: 'This is my Creation,' 
Flying the black flag of himself. 
-Ted Hughes

Metamorphosis

This project asked the students to each bring a piece of music to class. Using this music as inspiration, the student had to create a character complete with back story and personal traits, and draw or otherwise realize that character. Once realized, the final step was to imagine what type of chair your character might be, and then in ten steps show that Metamorphosis. In my case, the song was "Life Burns" by Apocolyptica. My character was a greaser who's entire life revolved around cars, he was even conceived in the backseat of a car. Due to a rich inheritance, Rod 'Big Chin' McMannis, lives a devil may care lifestyle and time will tell if he survives himself to collect it. His chair is his 1969 Firebird re-purposed into a throne. The metamorphosis is Rod spontaneously combusting, and then his Firebird rising from the ashes.

Through And On : A Cabaritual

Credit: Robert Mallin was the Set designer and Properties designer, as well as performer for the Concordia Theatre Departments collective collaboration outcome of Through And On: A Cabaritual staged at the Sala Rosa in Montreal March 2013.

Through And On: A Cabaritual was the outcome achieved from the unique "SoCalled" class taught by guest professor, Joshua "SoCalled" Dolgin. The class focused on research to live performance. Students had to find, research, and present on 'lost performances.' From these discoveries, themes and arts, a through line and performance was built.
