Design Statement

The void on stage- shaping emptiness
The idea of the “lieu vague” referring to an undefined real location is the starting point for my design concept and was linked with motifs as nothingness, void and profound uncertainty. Beckett's universe has no physical boundaries or a distinguished territory. The very first words of the play are Estragon’s: “Nothing to be done”. This is repeated several times and makes ‘nothing’ an obsessive and disturbing chorus. Repetition is often present in life, is how we learn to live and it turns into a mechanical way of living. It became the theme for the set, offering various means for creating the right setting for the actors. The scenic elements are all placed apparently without any logic or purpose in order to configure an absurd space, the expression of an inner disoriented and untidy universe. The paradox is the sensation of emptiness in a congested space . The acting area is not empty, it looks crowded, coated with objects of any type, but the void and feeling of loneliness are still very much present - an internal void born from a fake exterior built only to give the illusion of life.
