Scene Design and Technology

Dan Carlgren’s set design for Tweflth Night
Brian Saylor

This week on Stage Talk, we turn our attention to the world of Scene Design and Technology to give our listeners literally a “tour backstage”. Tune in to meet two of Anchorage’s busiest designers and technicians Dan Carlgren and Brian Saylor as they talk about how they first got involved in the art, what they’ve done, and their own personal and professional approaches to creating the physical world of a play. Carlgren is currently the Faculty Scenic Designer, Projection Designer and Technical Director for UAA Department of Theatre and Dance and Saylor designs and builds for several theatres in town including Anchorage Community Theatre and Cyrano’s Theatre Company.

Thanks for listening!
