The Portrait of a Lady

First mounted at CalArts, The Portrait of a Lady (adapted from the novel by Henry James) PORTRAIT was developed with the company of actors and designers, and began as an exploration of process over product and a rigorous investigation of character and theatrical format. We presented two company-developed "salons" at the start of our rehearsal process which used our space and our source material in completely different ways, before mounting a run of the full script.  For more information, photos, videos, and company-audience response, visit http://exquisitemistake.net/.
