Designing Floyd Collins
This fall LMPR had the opportunity to work with Vancouver-based artist Emily Cooper as she designed artwork for Patrick Street Productions‘ 2014 season. The photographer and designer’s signature style, instantly familiar to fans of?Pacific Theatre?and the?Shaw Festival,?combines photo illustration and collage to create compelling, abstracted imagery.
We were fascinated by Emily’s process and thought our readers would be equally intrigued by this unconventional approach.
Below we follow the development of artwork for Patrick Street’s March production of?Floyd Collins.?The haunting musical, based on true events that took place in 1925 Kentucky, tells the story of a man who set out to find the ultimate tourist attraction, but instead found himself trapped 100 feet below the earth.
Floyd Collins?runs March 11-30, 2014 at the newly-opened York Theatre on Commercial Drive. Tickets & info at thecultch.com.
