Der Besuch der alten Dame

Best Implemented Theatre Set Design

About the project
An extensive wooden installation starts at the front of the stage and ends at the back. A ramp rising from the audience to the center of the stage ends in stairs. Artists seem to resurface from the depth — or delicately hide from view, as required. A bridge hangs over the stage.
The structures are abstract and don’t really refer to any specific time or age. The plot develops in a town of Güllen, poor and deserted.
Setting is transformed by relocation of the same black tables and chairs.
