War of the Worlds was set to the script and original radio recording of Orson Wells iconic 1939 broadcast. We used hand built props infused with lighting and projection mapping to set the scenery. Improvised live music, the Grateful Dead's "Morning Dew" played live, and physical theater mixed with dance to created a story centered around hysteria and media mismanagement.
