Spotlight On Al Kucsar
Alexander Kulcsar has been designing sets for the stage since 1993, and has been resident set designer for Rainbow Theatre in Stamford, Connecticut and Square One Theatre in Stratford, CT. He is a also a graphic designer, writer, actor, documentarian and videographer. In 2015 he received an award from Square One for Outstanding Contribution to the Theatre. Alexander became a part of our network when he created the set for Frost/Nixon which was directed by our very own Bob Johnson. We loved that Alexander’s set design was flexible and instantly transformable into many different locations with minimal furnishing. The genius of the set included elevated spaces for characters that were commenting on the action, a pixelated back wall that opened to allow entrances and exits and excellent use of space.
Alexander has made a significant impact to our mission through his contribution to our production and we are extremely appreciative of his commitment.
Spotlights are created by the Ripple Effect Artists’ Editorial Desk. Each Spotlight highlights people, productions and initiatives that inspire us. At Ripple Effect Artists, we believe in building each other up and giving credit where credit is due. Taking charge of the future of our world is a more three-dimensional responsibility than it appears to be. It is not just about identifying the most pertinent social issues that need to be highlighted and discussed. It is also equally important to make a difference every single day by exhibiting kindness, compassion and empathy towards everyone we come in contact with. It is important to recognize that everyone who is chasing a dream is fighting inner demons of fear and insecurity every day. In a society where anything off the beaten track is considered a risk not worth taking, these people are giving a new name to courage. Thus, we think it is crucial to build each other up and encourage everyone to be the best version of themselves. Every. Single. Day.
