So much of how we experience theatre has to do with what we see. Berkeley Rep's Teen Council was lucky enough to meet with Daniel Ostling, the Tony Award-nominated set designer, before seeing Mary Zimmerman’s The White Snake, which is now playing here at Berkeley Rep. Aesthetically, the set designer creates the playing space for the actors and is instrumental in bringing the show to life. Daniel has collaborated with Mary on a number of productions, and shared with Teen Council what it means to start with a book, a myth, or a simple story and to end up with a stunning work of art.
Teen Council member Emily Radler interviewed Daniel as part of Teen Night, which is a discounted night of theatre at Berkeley Rep for Bay Area teens. The event includes an exclusive interview and dinner before the show. Here's a video of the interview, where Daniel shares insight about the creative process.
