Lawrence Moten is a New York City based designer working in stage, film/television, dance, and concert/festival design. He has worked both in scenic and costume design and finds his passion lies in the collaborative effort of creating the physical world on stage. New York design credits include work with Astoria Performing Arts Center, The Public’s UNDER THE RADAR FESTIVAL, Atlantic Acting School, The Habitat, and Mary John Frank Productions. Regional work includes Williamstown Theatre Festival, Merrimack Repertory Theatre, Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival, Berkeley Rep, Signature Theatre, Arena Stage, and Asolo Rep. Moten especially enjoys work that brings the discussion and representation of minorities and marginalized people to the center of the room. This work began as a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Scholar in undergraduate but has grown into an essential part of his mindset and work. Raised in Seattle, Washington, and San Antonio, Texas; Moten gained an appreciation for design, art, and music early on and decided to pursue his passion in design, earning his BFA in Theatrical Production Arts: Design from Ithaca College. He lives in Queens and freelances across the country. Often, he can be found with a book or guitar in his hands.
