"Mark Holthusen's artful projections, including slightly surrealist wave-like animations, and Alex Drofiak's moody lighting, and you have one of the handsomest productions to grace this stage in a long while." British Theater Magazine
"Mark Holthusen has produced a series of evocatively monochrome projections that convincingly evoke the desolation of a barren emotional and physical landscape."
I collaboration with MUH-TAY-ZIK I directed this :30 sec spot for the Washington Nationals One Pursuit campaign.

I first saw this place last May and fell in love with it, It took 3 seasons but I now have a Hudson Valley workspace and studio to call my own. I was able to purchase the Bloch School of Music from the wonderful Bloch family and I'm proud to be the next caretaker of this amazing property. It has a 150 year old post and beam barn that was used as a music school and performance space and an accompanying colonial house from mid 1700's along with various cabins scattered around, all on 10 beautiful wooded acres with a pond and streams. All visitors welcome, just be prepared Ill put you to work taping the maple trees but more likely sanding and painting. Restoration to begin in the spring of next year.
Subway posters for BCS 150 years anniversary.

"The humble but effective set must also be mentioned. Gone are the days of the roll-of-wallpaper backgrounds dropping from the ceiling behind the actors to set the scene on stage. River Bride perfected the use of projections on a white curtain, curved in a convex semicircle, so as a fishing boat drifted down the Amazon, the night sky floated with it. The minimalistic, yet functional stage gave the impression of simple, practical living, leaving ample room on the stage and in one’s mind for the unfolding drama."
