Crime and Punishment
Best Implemented Theatre Set Design
About the project
The key element on the stage is the black portal with a door (or a gate) that let the characters in and out. During the performance, the only location becomes a gloomy courtyard, a coffin-like room, and even a tube that drags the hero to Hell. Two light lines represent the extension of the characters’ minds.
The space of the stage looks ascetic, it is made monochromic and minimalistic, and the textures of the backdrapes resemble grey stone embankment walls or maybe dark waters of the Neva.
