MICHAEL STEIN & KYLE DIXON I STRANGER THINGS
The light installation is hinting at an abandoned, ruinous office space or a haunted warehouse. The whole stage seems to lie in ruins, resembling a jungle of cables and what seems to be neon lights.
The shape shifting light installation meanders between the neon light aesthetic of the opening titles, with flickering, eerie broken bulbs, a pink and blue lit rollerskate disco where you´d have your first kiss and turning into a resemblance of the upside down with the installation creeping all over the stage into the audience, always only showing silhouettes of Michael and Kyle.
