Music and Sound Design by Scott Elmegreen
1. an obsolete photographic process, invented in 1839.
2. a picture made by this process.
3. a post-bellum love story.
4. a portrait of an artist in his final days.
Matthew Brady’s images defined the Civil War. Now, at the twilight of his life, Brady must choose between the life he has built and the legacy he wants to leave behind. Daguerreotype is a fascinating and candid journey into the mind of one of America’s unsung artistic pioneers, and the iconic and powerful nature of the photograph.
“Ambitious … The energy and passion make for an exciting bit of theater… A trio of actors working together to unfreeze the still images of the past, riding the waves of time with vibrant rhapsody.” – Aaron Riccio, New Theater Corps
