Description:

       A desolate landscape, lost in the desert, nomads roaming the dunes, the ultimate search for water, "Mirage" brings the audience into this unique collection of images in an unforgiving environment. Warm desert colors throughout help to set the mood. The details of this show could be widely interpreted depending on your visual team's approach, taking the direction as abstract or as literal as you would like. Finishing the show is the epic discovery of water and the idea is to completely drench the field with blue in any and every way possible to totally change the color palette.
       This show was originally commissioned for the fall of 2012 and was released for the 2013 season.
