Designs for the Stage - Talk with Nephelie Andonyadis
Friday, February 12, 2021, 2:00 PM until 3:00 PM
Public Event of Interest
The award-winning set and costume designer Nephelie Andonyadis will discuss and share examples of her work and her approach to imagining and creating a visual aesthetic for a theatrical production.
Andonyadis was born in Washington DC and after 30 years studying and working from coast to coast, recently returned to the district. Last season she received a Helen Hayes award for Outstanding Set Design for the production of Susan Lori Park’s play Topdog/Underdog with the Avant Bard Theatre. She has worked with many regional theaters across the country and is a long time member of the ensemble of Cornerstone Theater Company based in Los Angeles. She’s been a Professor of Theater Arts at the University of Michigan and at the University of Redlands. She is a graduate of the Yale School of Drama and Cornell University School of Architecture and was a TCG/NEA design fellow. Before the pandemic, she’d been getting to know the DC area theater community through her work with Studio Theater, Mosaic Theater, Theatre J, Adventure Theater, and others, including Avant Bard. During this hiatus, while theaters are closed, she is back in graduate school working to build a bridge from the arts into the science of aging and health.
