THE ENGLERT AT 100
Photos by Sandy Dyas
Englert at 100 is a photography exhibit by Iowa City-based photographer Sandy Dyas celebrating the Englert’s centennial year with photos documenting show days from the arrival of the bus to the post-performance loadouts. She was given access behind the scenes, capturing performers warming up in the dressing rooms and Englert staff working their magic, creating a full-body of photos that speak to the identity of the theater. Dyas said she felt lucky to have been chosen for the job.
“When I see a photo of a particular show it jogs my memory and triggers emotions. What I’m doing with a photo is making a former experience deeper by showing the ingredients of the show, demonstrating how it works.” –Sandy Dyas
