Paris Texas

Live Tour

Creative Direction · Live · Photography · Fall 2021 · Live Performance Direction · Stage Design · 32 items ·
INFO

Creative direction, stage design, and photography for Paris Texas’ debut live tour. The stage was transformed into a “kill room.” We worked with limited space at smaller venues, striving to create an immersive, narrative-driven experience. Semi-transparent tarp treated with a mix of mud and blood surrounded the stage on three sides, providing a means of lighting diffusion for an ethereal atmosphere. Scrap metal, chains and a variety of junk was strewn across the stage, carefully blocked out to interact with our lighting.
