ODE : Libby Stadstad and Brandon Stirling Baker
Congradulations to Libby Stadstad and Brandon Stirling Baker on their featured article in Live Design. The flower #backdrop we help create for the show ODE is one to remember. Perfomance by Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre.
"Recently engaged, scenic designer Libby Stadstad and lighting designer Brandon Stirling Baker, a 2019 KOI-USA Award winner, designed their first production together, Jamar Robert’s Ode for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre at New York City Center. The December 2019 world premiere of this 17-minute piece featured scenic design by Stadstad and lighting by Baker. A meditation on the beauty and fragility of life in a time of growing gun violence, Ode is set to Don Pullen’s 1975 solo piano improvisation “Suite (Sweet) Malcolm (Part 1 Memories and Gunshots).” Live Design goes behind the scenes with the designers to learn more about their work." - Live Design
