Megan Reilly creates original lighting, media, and scenic designs for performance. Her professional work includes designs in Minneapolis for Mixed Blood Theatre, Walking Shadow Theatre, New Century Theatre, Open Eye Figure Theatre, Live Action Set and Red Eye Theatre. In Texas, she has designed for Austin companies such as Salvage Vanguard Theatre, Rude Mechanicals, Trouble Puppet, Whirligig Productions, and Hidden Room, and several productions with Playhouse San Antonio. Her work has also been seen internationally as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and with Collaborative Artists Company in Dublin, Ireland. A scholar-artist who researches through her theatrical design work as well as her own original performance work and installation art, Megan also investigates “experience design,” the process of creating entire worlds and realities that call for the active engagement of audience/participants in performances involving new media, immersive theatre, and alternate reality games. She is passionate about women's issues, creating a healthy lifestyle, practicing yoga, and reading too many books. She lives in Minneapolis, MN with her husband Travis Bedard, and their cats.
