How do you bring your stage to life when the main character is completely MUTE? At The National Theatre of The Hague, HNTjong found the secret recipe: a clever combination of colourful lighting and PVC diffuser fabric.
With a protagonist that is completely silent, the scenographer of theatrical production MUTE had to come up with a new way to convey communication on stage. Opting for a welded twin projection screen, mounted in a 3D structure resulted in a sober and minimalist décor.
By illuminating the diffuser fabric from behind, a beautiful even light spread fills the stage, immersing it in colourful glooms. A unique and effective way to translate the character’s relationships and emotions to the young audience of teenagers. Minimalist backdrops boring? Never!
