Lighting Design
Visual Concept
This performance equates the ideas inspired by the tolerance towards WWII Nazism with the current political climate. The rhinoceros represent both fascist governance and the absurdity of a society which could become an epidemic of the metamorphoses - from human to rhinoceros. The light projected on this arena-style stage resembles a trap and the presence of contagion. Light spreads throughout the floor and further occupies the audience seating, forcing the humans to capitulate. It responds to conflated obstacles in immigration, the drawing of borders and nation-states, and the correlation between assimilation and belonging.
