Set design for Mary Zimmerman's "The Arabian Nights" Leung, Ching Hei


The Arabian Nights by Mary Zimmerman, originally written in 1991, was presented at the 400-seat Frederic Wood Theatre at the University of British Columbia in Spring 2016. It ran from March 17 to April 2 and was directed by Evan Frayne. Lighting design was by Sophie Yufei Tang and costume design by Nicole Bairstow. The Arabian Nights was the last production of the UBC Theatre and Film Department’s 2015/2016 season. This thesis report documents the set design process for this production from conceptual to realized design and analyses the relationship between scenery movement and storytelling.
