dpurpurea studio is the design collaboration of
Derek Christiansen and Ruby O’Brien

Using their combined experience in theatrical projections, lighting, and scenic design, dpurpurea studio crafts theatrical and interactive experiences for live performance, filmed and broadcast media. They are hands-on, blending physical and traditional media with cutting edge technology and systems to create novel ways of enhancing an audience’s interaction with a narrative.

They are the projection designers for Dropout’s Dimension 20, where Derek has also worked as Director of Photography.

Derek Christiansen is a proud member of United Scenic Artists, Local 829.
