Gail Scott White


Gail Scott White is a new media scenographer and animator who collaboratively makes “Live Movies,” a hybrid art form that that interactively synthesizes animation and cinematic art, theatrical and musical elements with built environments and live performance. She has created new media designs for B3W’s Confined, Dixon Place (NYC) and Irondale Center (Brooklyn NY); Ariel Dance Theatre’s Flush: The Gyre Project, Long Center for the Performing Arts (Austin TX); Maryland Opera Studio’s premiere of Shadowboxer (on the life of Joe Louis), Clarice Smith Center for the Performing Arts (College Park MD); The Heidi Chronicles by Wendy Wasserstein, Arena Stage (Washington DC); and Hamlet at Temple Theatre in Sanford NC, and Actors Guild of Lexington (KY). Additional new media scenography includes Cyburbia Productions’ Silence & Darkness, a live movie for the cell phone age and Time Traveler Zero Zero — A Story of John Titor; Komar & Melamid’s opera Naked Revolution (composed by Dave Soldier); Marisol by José Rivera; Doctor Faustus by Christopher Marlowe; Mephisto by Klaus Mann/Ariane Mnouchkine; Moisés Kaufman and Tectonic Theater Project’s 33 Variations in Arena Stage’s workshop production at Georgetown University; and several productions for Encompass New Opera Theatre (NYC). She has written essays on new media scenography for Live Design and American Theatre magazines, and is the co-editor of Live Movies: A Field Guide to New Media for the Performing Arts. White’s work has been funded by an Artists Fellowship from the Virginia Commission on the Arts, Virginia’s Center for Innovative Technology, and by a $125,000 National Endowment for the Arts grant for the “New Stage Technology Project.” With Kirby Malone, she founded and directs the performance and design company Cyburbia Productions in Fairfax VA.
