Fires in the Mirror is about the Crown Heights riots of 1991. It is a one woman show where the solo performer acts in the role of each interviewee, embodying his/her voice and movements, and expressing his/her message and personality. The actor often had to change on stage so it was a challenge finding pieces that would transform a character with a simple quick change.
I did costumes, wigs and props for this challenging show and was fortunate to work with the amazingly talented and insightful Marium Carvell.
