Praise for A Midsummer Night’s Dream, South Coast Rep
"Scenic Designer Cameron Anderson and Costume Designer Nephelie Andonyadis conjure their own creative magic into the mix. Anderson deftly bathes the Royal Palace with white silken drapery and period English furniture, while segueing to the colorful, gigantic forest scenes with ease. In terms of the costuming, Andonyadis provides a classy regal touch to the Royals, but then goes all out with the fairies using patchwork loin cloths and other decorative attire that match the hedonistic atmosphere perfectly. What is fascinating is the arrival of the mechanicals serves as the transition from the reality of the palace to the fantasy of the forest scenes. Although dressed like typical, working class handymen, the mechanicals arrive and leave the stage by way of a “mutant vehicle,” a mode of transportation commonly used at the Burning Man retreat where the entire automobile is literally put together piecemeal by abandoned junk parts and is fully operational. And Anderson’s “Mechanical Mobile” — composed of two motorcycles, a gypsy wagon and a wall/performance stage composed of wine and beer bottles — captures the thematic transformation between reality and fantasy and, eventually, a marriage of both worlds."
