the White Stripes

Lighting Design and Production design

Icky Thump tour 2014-2015

The White Stripes' 2007 tour featured a bright red set inspired by a photo studio's seamless paper backdrop. INitially a simple, custom built curved backdrop, it was expanded as the tour went on to include a catwalk with three staircases. Color was limited to the White Stripes colors of red, white and black, flooring, risers, audio equipment and select light fixtures were customized to a matching shiny red finish. The stage was dominated by the iconic imagery of the two musicians' giant cast shadows, punctuated by strobes and the bursts of light from a large mirror ball.
