“Poems are made by fools like me…”

Joyce Kilmer’s famed assertion that “only God can make a tree” is contradicted when you see the east end of the IU Scenic Studio, where a wood’s worth of trees is laid out on the floor and horses. These hand-made trees will help create the forest in our upcoming production of Woyzeck (February 7, 8, 11-15).


Not for yule logs, thank you: These scenic pieces will create WOYZECK’s forest, home of demons, sprites, voices, and murder.

“Only God can make a tree,” Woody Allen has written, “probably because it’s so hard to figure out how to get the bark on.” We get our bark on the old-fashioned way, by stretching fabric over wood framework and giving the resulting “tree” careful, bark-like coats of paint.
