The Alice Project

Produced by Carnegie Mellon University
Directed by Marianne Weems
Sound Design and Original Music by Erik T. Lawson

The Alice Project is a devised theatre piece inspired by the novel Through the Looking Glass. The soundscore is influenced by the game of chess, a framework guiding the novel. At the beginning of the play the score is relatively structured. The sound and musical elements follow logical rules, are meticulous, and illustrate order. As the play progresses the sound design gradually grows unpredictable and chaotic, emphasizing the wild and unexpected.

Selections from the score:

Scenic Design, Meg Cunningham
Costume Design, Albulena Borovico, Christine Causas, Yin Jung, Lindsey Vandevier
Lighting and Media Design, Robert Figuiera, Cat Wilson
