The Work of Luke Williams
Inviolet Rep Theater Company
Sommerfugl is an avant garde play, based on the first recorded gender reassignment surgery, conducted on a Dutch man. The title of the play is translated from Dutch to English as "butterfly". In an effort to emulate the cocoon state as a moment of transition, typographic and human forms were employed to create the title. A single light source provokes high contrast light and shadow play, emphasizing the theme of transition again.
