STAGE AND COSTUME DESIGN

REGIE BARBORA HORÁKOVÁ JOLY

THEATER BASEL 2018

Eva-Maria van Acker's set was also brilliant. What began as a many-beamed, Mark di Suvero-like sculpture was soon cranked down around itself to make the nave of a parish church, complete with neon cross. While that reminded us of morality and mortality, the beams later morphed into a simple barn façade, alluding to the merits of abstinence and strict discipline.
