Using Brazilian Baroque sculpture as inspiration, I wanted to create a world where actors embodied the life of saints. Statues were the core element of my design and they represented the still and powerless form that human bodies retain without their soul. The juxtaposition of costumes, wearable art and actors created the illusion of an art gallery that transformed itself into a performance space. As an artist, I thrived to help the actors find interesting ways to bring different characters to life. By embracing my design, actors gave life to saints and allowed my ideas to be realized on stage.
