La signorina Else
The result of an empathy with the director, in just three months it was possible to deny the temporal place of the play.
An ageless technological wall, summing up different eras, blocks the proscenium. Together with Bagnoli, the lighting designer, we placed the controls within the technological wall, together with the tecnhnicians operating them.
This choice is linked to a reading of the text that interprets the whole story as a fantasy of Else, as if everything that surrounds her is only the fruit of her imagination. Therefore a non-place.
Studio Benaim worked on the scenes of La signorina Else, texts by Arthur Schnitzler, directed by Thierry Salmon, Teatro di Modena, 1986.
