Susannah is the opera written and composed by American composer Carlisle Floyd in 1955. The opera is based on a story from the Biblical Apocrypha. For the live performance of this opera at the Jefferson Center in Roanoke, I designed the animations that projected onto a screen, which was designed and fitted as a part of the set design. I created the series of animations that enhanced the story of the entire length of the opera.

This project was in collaboration with Opera Roanoke’s 2016-2017 season. Carlisle Floyd’s Susannah was performed at the Jefferson Center in Roanoke, Virginia, on April 28 and 30, 2017.


Visualizing History

Funded by a 2016-17 ICAT SEAD grant, a transdisciplinary team from Virginia Tech comprising Thomas Tucker (Creative Technology, School of Visual Arts), Todd Ogle (Technology-enhanced Learning and Online Strategies), David Hicks (History and Social Science Education, School of Education), DongSoo Choi (Creative Technology, School of Visual Arts), and David Cline (Public History, Department of History) created a learning environment that is a hands-on, mixed-reality exhibit of the human experience in the contested landscape of World War I.
