Design Statement

'The Coup' cleverly satirizes the belief held by many, that of knowing the truth about life and the world, and of knowing how to save it and make it a better place.
The stage design is inspired by the comics aesthetics and the portraying of light as 'yellow' and darkness as 'blue'. The design also draws its inspiration from the installation at the Rayen restaurant in Madrid, Spain, created by the 'Fos' group. The use of the meaning of 'light' as 'the truth', and that of 'darkenss' as 'obscurantism' played an important role.
The costumes contribute to the comics aesthetics and discuss the inertia of people towards the change they wish to make, but who instead sit in front of their computers, in their pyjamas wearing slippers, without eventually changing anything.
