Mahwish Chishty Designs Central Scenic Element for GROUNDED

Assistant Professor in Foundations, Mahwish Chishty, is designing a central scenic element for the Company of Fools production of GROUNDED by award-winning playwright George Brant.  The play will run Sept. 28-Oct. 13 at the Liberty Theatre in Hailey, Idaho. 

"I am delighted to be collaborating with Company of Fools' production team to design this scenic element for such a timely play as Grounded," said Ms. Chishty. "Bringing George Brant's vision to life, I have taken inspiration from the script to generate this symbolic rendering. Adding to this drama, I am also improvising by taking inspiration from Pakistani truck art genre to utilize the patina of the drone as canvas. My hope is that this vibrant, hovering Reaper drone above the stage and the audience will add to the drama and enhance the complexities of the drone war presented in the play."
