Design Statement

For Red, we removed all stage curtains in the theatre, exposing and utilizing the existing environment and its elements - concrete walls, doorways to the dressing rooms and entrances, as well as the windows sealed away behind the curtains - to form the main composition of the performance setting. With the desaturating of the overall stage colour scheme, and the single installation of a disproportionately huge sliding panel-on-rail that takes the centre stage in this restored space, its otherwise realistic expression is deliberately meddled with by a sense of dreamy impressionism.
To contribute to the climaxing effect, the originally harmonious and neutral setting exemplified the contrast when Mark Rothko turned around his gigantic painting in vivid red from the back of the panel, revealing it to the audience. The stark contrast presented here further dulled the background and the tragic atmosphere surrounding the main character peaked instantly. At the ending as he steadily pushed his huge panel of painting along the rail, closer and closer in a ceremonial pace towards the audience, the somber air climaxed in the confines of the theatre space, leaving the audience in tears.
