Nikos Salingaros, the University of Texas mathematician and architectural theorist whose thought has influenced Amy Freed – the playwright who wrote “The Monster-Builder” – has sent me a trailer of the play now being performed at the Artists Repertory Theatre in Portland, Ore. He got the trailer from Michael Mehaffy, who first alerted me to the play’s existence a week or so ago.
It is not a trailer like most movie or even theatrical trailers but features Amy Freed discussing the issues of her play and how she sought to evoke the profundity of how architecture affects us, but with a lighter touch. Some scenes from the play itself are spliced into her discussion. Here is the trailer.
