Photographing the artists of West of Lenin Theatre
Photographing “Demon Dreams” by Tommy Smith for West of Lenin brought photographing artists in the Seattle theatre scene full circle for me. It was here at this theatre (almost nine months ago) that I photographed my first collection of artists: the men of “WHITE HOT” – playwright Tommy Smith himself (the first artist shot for PhotoSister.com), along with director Braden Abraham, producer Mark Siano and actor Ray Tagavilla.
This time, I was thrilled to photograph a fabulous cast of 6 that were are the perfect ensemble to embody the 54 different characters in “Demon Dreams”:
Carter Rodriguez – Kubon (who was recently in Cafe Nordo’s Cabinet of Curiosities), Chris Macdonald – Hibon (you might also remember Chris from another one of Tommy’s plays, Sextet, that was performed at Washington Ensemble Theatre), Matt Aguayo – Yobon, Heather Persinger – Sanpon (also played in Sextet), Susanna Burney – Nippon, and Sara Peterson – Chipon.
