Project: Vienna Music Festival 2006, Production of The Gospel Of Colonus
Fabric: Various Voiles and Satin
………… DIGITAL PRINTING by Sew What?
Lee Breuer and Bob Telson’s award-winning Broadway show returns for its 20th Anniversary Tour with the Blind Boys of Alabama, the Original Soul Stirrers and J.D. Steele of the Steeles. The Gospel at Colonus is a musical celebration that seamlessly blends the agony of Greek tragedy and the ecstasy of American gospel music and the sanctified church.
Designer Alison Yerxa chose a variety of colored and patterned voiles which when layered and combined with crushed satin created a dynamic stage set design. Addition of bullion trims and woven ropes gave accent to the swags and jabots on both upper and lower levels of the scene.
The beautiful rendering designed and created by Alison Yerxa was reproduced as a digital image onto coated vinyl and is seen as the medallion nestled into the arch of the church. Sew What? Inc’s digital printing services have been utilized by many of the top designers and performers, as well as for many ballet and opera companies.
