Smile

by Brittany Bland

Using live projection and audio interviews, Smile puts the audience at the center of a Harlem-born photographers family archive.
Wonder/Wall is an exciting and new immersive video performance series. Performances will be approximately 15 minutes in duration, and will take place within Bay Street Theater’s courtyard, which will be converted into a newly envisioned outdoor performance space created especially for this compelling presentation.

 

Brittany Bland is a storyteller who has dedicated her life to the proliferation of empathy. As a projection designer for the stage, she has designed for theater, dance, and opera. Her work as a video artist often explores the ideas of legacy and memory. Brittany is interested in how media and technology can elevate those concepts and experiences. Originally from Atlanta, she holds a BA in Technical Theater and Production from Catawba College and an MFA in Design from the Yale School of Drama. Her recent design credits include Songs For A New World (NYU); Dozen Dreams (En Garde Arts); Love and Kindness in the Time of Quarantine (St Louis Rep); Stupid Fucking Bird (Barnard); Cuttin Up (Classical Theater of Harlem); Rage (Quinnipiac University); Florencia en el Amazonas (Shubert Theater); Alice (Yale University Theater); Black History Museum (Here Arts Center); and Twelfth Night (Yale Repertory Theater).
