Othello: The Remix
Othello: The Remix is a hip-hop reinterpretation of Shakespeare's tragedy Othello, written by The Q Brothers. From my first reading of the script I was intrigued by the way that Othello: The Remix modernized the story of Othello while remaining true to many aspects of the original version. I felt that the scenic design should mirror the script's relationship between old and new.
My design has the structure of an Elizabethan stage made of contemporary materials. I chose speakers and truss to reinforce the setting of the music industry.
