Research: Live Performance

Virgin and the Unicorn

Rhodopi International Theater Laboratory, 2008.

This workshop theater production based on Leonardo Da Vinci’s version of the classic myth was created by Alexandar Iliev (Bulgarian National Academy of Theatre and Film Arts), Jed Harris (Carnegie Mellon School of Drama), Sergio Costola (Southwestern University) and Jeff Burke (UCLA REMAP) for the Rhodopi International Theater Laboratory in 2008. Collaborating artists for REMAP included Cat Deakins (cinematography/visuals), Jonathan Snipes (sound design/composition), and Francesco Capodieci (software).

The piece incorporated research and a performance text by Costola, movement styles from carnival performance through commedia by Iliev and Harris, and media by Burke, Capodieci, Deakins, and Snipes.
