Rehearsal days involve a lot of laptop time as our video and stage teams fine-tune the details to create the amazing experience that will be TEDWomen 2017 in New Orleans. Photo: Ryan Lash / TED
We’re about to open the doors for the audience to join TEDWomen in New Orleans — three days of powerful talks from women and men that take on the issues breaking now and share soul-deep ideas for creating better lives going forward. TEDWomen is happening in an astonishing theater, new to us and freshly renovated but nearly a century old. In itself it’s a story of renewal and rejuvenation: Flooded during Katrina, the theater was meticulously restored and reopened in 2015. During our rehearsal and setup says, we’re pretty unabashedly taking hundreds of pictures of this glorious interior — which is about to rock with the sounds of the Lake Area Girls Choir backing the Broadway star Deborah Cox.
Photographer Ryan Lash captures this amazing theater from three angles — from the top of the house, from the first balcony, and a reverse shot from backstage capturing yet another impromptu crew meeting on the red circle.
