Denver School of the Arts | Theatre Senior Project: OSMOSIS
I photographed the dress rehearsal of the Senior Project at the Denver School of the Arts a few days ago. But I didn't really experience OSMOSIS until last night, when I got to sit and become completely absorbed in the story and these incredibly compelling characters. I woke up thinking about it, my son and I are still talking about it now, and I'm quite sure the story of connection, relationship and the role of chance that these kids told will be with me for a long time...
Bella O'Brien, Liam Broadhurst and Belle Stockdale, all seniors at this incredible school, wrote an absolutely STUNNING play (which I hope is published!!); the entire senior production and design team was clearly inspired; and Andie Lerner's direction was both visionary and impeccable! The use of music, lighting and movement sequences added to both the impact and the visual beauty of this original work.
And the entire CAST... when I look at this photo above, now having really FELT the show, it blows me away how the layers of these well developed characters jump out from this still image (the depth in Mitchell Lippett's eyes speaks volumes as to the story).
Huge congratulations to the Class of 2014 Theatre Majors.
You truly moved my heart.
I'll share one more particularly powerful moment:
