Description

The Doctoral Theatre Students’ Association presents the 2020 Edwin Booth Award to New York designer Mimi Lien. The Edwin Booth Award is given annually by the DTSA to honor a person, organization, or company for their outstanding contribution to the NYC theatre community, and to promote integration of professional and academic theatre.

Mimi Lien designs sets and environments for theatre, dance, and opera. Arriving at set design from a background in architecture, her work often focuses on the interaction between audience/environment and object/performer. She is co-founder of JACK, the inclusion-minded performance space in Brooklyn; sits on the Board of Directors at Soho Rep; and is a core company member of Pig Iron Theatre Company (Philadelphia), where she was recently the lead artist of SUPERTERRANEAN (‘19), the company’s epic piece of “visual theatre.”
