Design Statement

This dramatization focuses on a control and monitoring theme. Language and memories are washed out, now and then are confused and outer events can not be detached from beliefs and fantasies.

I created a claustrophobic, white tunnel, representing Big Brothers all seeing eye as well as a room within the main character Winston´s head.

Projections pictured the all seeing Telescreen or painted the construction with abstract environments. A hidden back room served as TV-studio for live camera footage projections. When Winston believes he is dwelled in a secret room, he is actually simultaneously seen by Big Brother and in our performance; the audience. When he is revealed, the tunnel breaks apart and splits into multiple parts, the TV-studio is revealed as well and the theatre room is exposed as a construction and a fake reality. In the end the scenography is elegantly put together again as if nothing happened, since the play ends with starting all over again, the history repeating it self.
