Paris – 2010


Design – planning – modell making

Awarded best scenography project in the framework of a competition in Corporation with the National Theater « La Collins » in Paris, in collaboration with Mariella Jouslin de Noray.

The contemporary play Bulbus deals with Manuel´s sick body. Manuel is unable to cope with his past and is permanently recalling the history of East Germany. The place Bulbus is like an organ expressing its illnes by the deformity of its skin. In order to recover from this illnes, the community (Jutta…Schratz, Albert Ross, Rosa Landen and the old Markidis) is remembering this history and tries to understand the reason for this illnes.

The scenography is based on spaces which in the course of the play are moving up or down in order to signify the scenes within or outside the ice. The stage is envelopped in transparent plastic material representing the skin and the injury of the body.
