BORIS GODUNOV

New Jersey, US | 2007

 

The Princeton University production of Boris Godunov, in 2007, was the World Premiere of the English translation of Meyerhold’s Production of Pushkin’s Boris Godunov. The set design and production for the show was undertaken by a seminar at Princeton University’s School of Architecture, directed by Jesse Reiser and Jeffrey Kipnis. The seminar explored material strategies and optical effects across a range of scales, to produce an engaging set design, rather than simply a backdrop or stage setting. Using surgical rubber tubing, the stage set became as much a part of the performance as the actors, providing an armature for them to perform within, as well as enhancing effects of movement, speed, and depth.
