Stage Frights: Madness, Monsters, Mayhem

Exhibition Website

Sep 28 2017 - Feb 4 2018

McNay Art Museum

San Antonio, TX

As days grow shorter, Stage Frights explores what happens when the house goes dark. From its origins in sacred ritual, theatre has always expressed the supernatural. Gods have withdrawn from the stage, but magic and madness, ghosts and ghouls remain. We continue to look to performance to explore the demons and dreams that torment and inspire us, as individuals and societies.

Stage Frights features scene and costume designs for plays, operas, and ballets by writers and composers.
