Catalyst Arts Atlanta’s K2
“The lighting offers a tremendous advantage to the overall simplicity of the set. With only two actors, a slanted playing space of roughly 20 feet and an abundance of the color white, Maranda DeBusk’s lighting design success is in its simplicity and contrast. Icy blue wash with a sharp, bright, orange light emitting from beneath the ice creates surreal moments of ascension. Soft, yellow light through the fog heightens the awareness of being surrounded by nothingness.”
