Status Project completed
Based on observations on the Italian Renaissance, on Buster Keaton's silent film "One Week" and on personal situations, the Swiss theater company Schauplatz International asks what idealism means.
Based on a deconstructivist conception of the space, the set design offers a minimalist composition made of wooden frames filled with a canvas. These frames are an integral part of the flooring. Manipulated over the play by the protagonists, they transform the space , deploying its evolutive and dreamlike dimension.
