CARLO MAGHIRANG - SCENOGRAPHY

 

 

Carlo Maghirang is a freelance visual artist/designer in the Los Angeles area. With a diverse background in the fine arts, he is proficient in design, sculpture, scenic painting, puppetry, graphic art, collage/assemblage, and digital animation, specializing in creating spaces in motion (cos(myth)os, The Glass Mountain).

 

Projects include The Industry's 'Sweet Land' directed by Yuval Sharon (Los Angeles State Historic Park, CA), the national tour of Fore!, written by Aleshea Harris and directed by Arnaud Meunier (St. Etienne, Paris, Nice - France, Brussels - Belgium), as well as scenic designer for renown Indonesian dance and performance artist Didik Nini Thowok. Others include Heidi Duckler Dance Theater's 'The Enormous Wound,' and the West Coast premier of Erin Courtney's 'A Map of Virtue' at Barker Room Rep. 

Featured artist for the United States in the Professional category for scenic design at the Prague Quadrennial Performance Design Exhibition for his work in Fore! and The Glass Mountain, curated by USITT. 

Works outside of theater involve production design for NXTGEN's music video 'Sucka 4 Love', musical artist Speck City, and various collaborations with event design companies such as Entertainment Design Corporation, Vizier Productions, and Global Entertainment Services.

 

He has also served as Associate Scenic Designer to Chris Barreca for David Byrne's Joan of Arc: Into the Fire (Public Theater, NY), Lynn Nottage's Sweat (Mark Taper Forum), and Adrienne Kennedy's 'He Brought Her Heart Back in a Box' (TFANA, NY). 

 

Carlo is a Los Angeles resident, and a transplant from the Philippines. His work puts major emphasis on industrial landscapes as well as chimerical objects in order to define liveness, motivated by a constant search for empathetic spaces.
