Verklärte Nacht by Arnold Schoenberg, a performance for string sextet and projections conceived and created by Hannah Wasileski, Yale School of Drama, 2013
Born and raised in Berlin, Hannah found her way into the visual and performing arts through her background as a classical violinist. Beginning as a video and installation artist after graduating from the University of Brighton, UK, she was immediately drawn to the theatre upon moving to New York City, where she discovered the existence of the so-called medium of ‘projection design’. She was smitten, and found herself lucky enough to enter the Yale School of Drama in the inaugural class of projection designers. At Yale, she designed the premier of Sarah Ruhl’s Dear Elizabeth, directed by Les Waters (Yale Rep and Berkeley Rep), Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights, A Streetcar Named Desire, as well as shows at the Yale Cabaret. Projection designs in NYC include multiple productions at the HERE Arts Center, Columbia University, Littlefield; her installation and video work has been exhibited in Brighton, London, and Glasgow.
