Anton Chekhov’s The Cherry Garden
Best Implemented Theatre Set Design
About the project
The pavilion resembles a pipe that sucks anything that appears near it into the black square of time. The stage is designed as a white room with red circus-like floor. The space is a house and a nursery of Ranevskaya at once. Soft light makes it resemble a cocoon, but when backlit, it becomes a glass cage.
Cut tree branches in the finale look like the cut short hair of Ranevskaya and Anya. By the way, the color of the pavilion changes depending on what Ranevskaya wears.
