Projection DesignerKwame Braun
Kwame Braun started creating video projections for performance while teaching video production in UC Berkeley’s Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies department, with phantasmagorical imagery for Naomi Wallace’s Slaughter City. A surprising number of his subsequent shows have have indulged this sort of weirdness, including Lasso of Truth, Carson Kreitzer’s play about the origins of Wonder Woman (Marin Theater Company, 2014), Chavez Ravine by Culture Clash (UC Berkeley, 2016) Mary’s Wedding by Stephan Massicotte (Portland Center Stage, 2017), and Eyes Wide Open, a chamber opera, libretto by Philip Kan Gotanda, music by Max Duykers, premiered in 2022 at the Presidio Theater in San Francisco. Kwame has been striving for more muted hallucinations in recent projects, and Meet Me At Dawn seems perfect for that.
