Show Development

During spring 2014, I worked with a close friend on the production of her creative senior thesis. The show was written about the symmetries existing within the laws of physics and the discovery of the Higgs Boson.
The result of the thesis project was an interactive and collaborative performance throughout Harvard's Farkas Hall. I designed and controlled motion-tracking systems for dancers throughout the performance.
