Aibolit and Barmaley

Design Statement

Oleksandr Inozemtsev, the director of the show started the new production of Aibolit and Barmaley having a very strong approach developed in the previous productions; he had had very specific requirements to the type of puppets, to the costumes of the puppeteers and to a number of scenic elements such as the Sun, the drums and the central “tables” for the puppets. So, I was challenged to create a completely new scenography satisfying the director’s needs. I chose the bamboo sticks and colored rope as my major textures; silk dyeing served well to represent the jungle foliage. I reinterpreted the images of the puppet characters; also, I used various fabrics to texture the top surface of the puppets.
The major challenges for lighting design was precise focusing achieved by custom-made “barn doors” attached to “top hats” (first used at that company for my design for Viy) and the careful balancing of the incandescent and LED-fixtures.
