Disney's Frozen on Broadway: Gift for Cast
We collaborated with the fine folks at the Broadway production of Frozen to create an opening night gift for the cast and crew, and were delighted that they requested we use an excerpt from LITTLE GIDDING by T. S. Eliot.
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
As a former actor, I can relate to this quote. Not only is the rehearsal process a circular exploration (returning to the same narrative each day), but the acting process itself is one of acquiring knowledge and insight about the character and story, and then in a sense letting go of that knowledge in order to fully live in the moment. In other words, to “know the place for the first time."
To capture the coming-full-circle theme in the quote and to provide a nod to the themes in Frozen, I decided to create a six-pointed snowflake shape representing six distinct seasons rather than four. It was a pleasure to develop this illustration and we were thrilled to share our work with such a talented cast and production.
