Pinocchio — du er bra nok, treskalle!

Best Implemented Theatre Set Design

About the project
Pinocchio — du er bra nok, treskalle! is a newly written story based on Carlo Collodi's «The Adventures of Pinocchio» about being a different family and being good enough for each other. It's about discovering that you are unique. And about that you can actually get what you want, if you wishes strongly enough and get some help from magic.
The stage design is all made of real wood, and that was something the audience could feel and hear. By using the movement in the revolving stage that rotated in 3 individual pieces and directions and also the rotating squared pillars in the back — we could make magic moments for Pinocchio's journey. The pillars in the back also rotated individually with 3 different colours of wood and the fourth in mirror on the surface.
The wood for me as the artist stands for Father Geppeto's work as a carpenter and his love for wood — watching it come alive. Many of the costumes where made of cork-material.
