"This darkly funny, electric new play with music tells the story of a Khmer Rouge survivor returning to Cambodia for the first time in 30 years, as his daughter prepares to prosecute one of Cambodia’s most infamous war criminals. Backed by a live band playing contemporary Dengue Fever hits and classic Cambodian oldies, this thrilling story toggles back and forth in time as father and daughter face the music of the past. Directed by Chay Yew, this intimate rock epic about family secrets is set against a dark chapter of Cambodian history."

The vibrant 70s rock sound of Dengue Fever plays such an essential role in the show, 
so I focused on creating promotional materials that conveyed that same energy.
I created this poster for the fictional titular band with period accurate Art Nouveau influences in mind. 
It was the center piece for the lobby display, used for advertising on social, and ultimately printed and distributed as wrap presents for the cast and crew.
During the final dress rehearsal, I shot on film in addition to digital. Although this was challenging to do for such a fast paced production, the raw, imperfect quality of the photos capture the ephemerality of this show and the live experience of being at a Cyclos concert in the 70s.
