Theatre set design project from Perm, Russia, is going to compete for the title of this year’s leader.
The Wild World and the Single State – these are two main spaces for the We performance after Zamyatin’s novel “We.” The Single State features much white and grey, it is sterile and universal, graphical and well-ordered.
A curtain made of transparent metal elements represents a wall between the Single State and the Wild World, which is located at the apron-stage and in the audience hall. It lets us view the heroes as if through a camera lens. The symbol of the play are two identical hexagons, apathetic and stable just like the life in the Single State, but with energy of motion and love hidden inside. Another geometrical figure is a dodecahedron.
Vera Nikolskaya is the set designer of the performance implemented at the Perm Academic Theatre.
