Designing Projections For Oslo

Ben Pearcy of 59 Productions spearheaded the projection design for Lincoln Center Theater's Tony Award-winning play, Oslo.

Lincoln Center Theater's production of Oslo won the 2017 Tony Award for Best Play, having moved into the Vivian Beaumont from the smaller Mitzi Newhouse, its downstairs neighbor at Lincoln Center. Directed by Bartlett Sher, J.T. Rogers' play about diplomatic intrigue and back-channel negotiations in Oslo to try and bridge peace between Israel and the Palestinians in 1992-1993, has sets by Michael Yeargan, costumes by Catherine Zuber, lighting by Don Holder, and projections by 59 Productions, led by Ben Pearcy, to help set the various locations by the use of archival and more abstract images.
