The Changeling : a scenic design process from paper to stage Luis, Bellassai Gauto


This paper documents and describes the design process and final Scenic design for the play The Changeling. The staged show was an adaptation of the original version of the Jacobean tragedy written by Thomas Middleton and William Rowley. The script was adapted by the MFA student Luciana Silvestre Fernandez, who also assumed the role of director. The show was produced by the Department of Theater & Film at the University of British Columbia. Various UBC faculties were involved in the project. The production was presented at the Telus Studio Theatre at the Chan Centre for The Performing Arts from January 16 to February 1, 2020, as part of the UBC Theater & Film 2019/2020 Season. The design process began in October 2019 with a design team comprised of UBC students Charlotte Chang (Costume Design), Zach Levis (Lighting Design) and Jacob Wan (Sound Design). I was the scenic designer and was assisted by Kallista Dittrick-Katevatis and Yujia Cao. The advisor for this production was Patrick Rizzotti and the Technical director was Derek Meehan. Several BFA students were involved in the construction of the set and selected BFA acting students performed it as part of their program.
