The scenography is based on the use of slide projectors on stage, moved just like other various elements of the scenery by the actors becoming then technicians. The play area is redefined by a stage but doesn’t limit itself there. The actors reach it by two ramps, one to garden (right side of the stage for the public) and one to court (left side of the stage for the public), in the background.


An old bootlid also participates in the scenography. Just like the fixed element placed in the background on stage and in which are hidden the various modules in polystyrene, the bootlid allows to tidy up accessories and some elements of costumes allowing to identify characters. It can also be used as technical box for projectors and then an interesting support on stage.


On stage there are three mobile panels and one screen for projection allowing to project pictures and videos. The modules were imagined in polystyrene to serve also as medium of projection. Progressively the blocks of polystyrene are crumbling off on stage and the scenography deconstructs itself and disappears.



A combination inspired by the typical shirt of the ‘mujik’, the Russian farmer of a poor social standing, allows the actors to stay on stage and to intervene as technicians, on which they put on pieces of period costumes.
