Don't Trust Anyone Over Thirty: The Storyboard is an entire wall/room installation consisting of drawings, collages, photos and videos, unfolding the creative process and spirit of the rock opera. The Storyboard reveals the opera's visual and audio elements in a collage-like synopsis and features documents of the concept, and references to the "hippie era". One of the works is the original cover of Neil Young's first solo album from 1968, which was influential for the entire production, its spirit and the music. The collage like costume and puppet design studies evidence the ways in which the individual characters of the story developed. Laurent P. Berger's drawings reveal his congenial set design for Don't Trust Anyone Over Thirty with the sculptural elements of the stage, functioning simultaneously as a platform for a hybrid multi-media installation of puppetry, live band and projection area for the videos. Tony Oursler's videos featuring the puppets also show footage not used in the performance, such as dress rehearsals, documenting the artist's collaboration with master puppeteer Philip Huber. The videos are accompanied by the opera's enthralling music, compiled by Bruce Odland, sound designer to Don't Trust Anyone Over Thirty, which finally conveys the spirit of the theater performance.
