The Last Encounter

Category: Performance Design

Design Statement

For this set, I designed a division in the walls to give another dimension to the realism of the play, and to hide items that would otherwise tend to distract the viewer, the objects on the walls, such as the paintings for example. This allows us to concentrate on the actors showing the limits of the realistic space giving an atmosphere for their thoughts.
