Creepy photos for "Misery" at Teater Republik


Natascha Thiara Rydvald worked closely with lightning designers to be able to take photos at the dark stage.

The theatre version of the famous Stephen King novell Misery was staged at Teater Republik in September and October 2018. Natascha Thiara Rydvald made the PR photos for the play.

Many has seen the movie Misery from 1990 with actress Kathy Bates in the role as the nurse Annie Wilkes who takes author Paul Sheldon as hostage after a car accident.


"It was a horror show. I try to find ways and angles that support the thrill. I worked closely with the light designers in the process.

The challenge was the very dark lighting. While I like to move around in the dark, the photos should still be able to expose," Natascha Thiara Rydvald.
