Requiem for an Electric Chair

I created these on-stage figures for Requiem for an Electric Chair, a play by Toto Kisaku.  Toto Kisaku is a Congolese artist, performer, writer, and activist who was granted political asylum in the United States in early 2018.  The play tells his story of being imprisoned by a corrupt government and serves as a warning to us to say no when asked to cross the line. The World Premiere of Requiem for an Electric Chair was performed at the 2018 International Festival of Arts & Ideas in New Haven CT.
