THE VISIT

Setting: Poland, 1940s

While reading this play I saw the town people becoming animals in their hardship. This reminded me of my country's history and its problems. Therefore I combined my vision of post-war Poland with Greek Mythology, which was included in the text, while compering the main character to Clotho, the Spinner of the Thread of Life. This mesh up created a vision based on realism and fantasy.

Claire

The character of Claire was compared in the play to Clotho, who in Greek Mythology as Spinner of the Thread of Life. Therefore I started to look into the stories of The Fates. Clotho was in control of ones life, while she spinned it - its length, hardships and its end. This was reflected in the character of Claire, who throughout the play toyed with town people's minds. This is why I imagined her to be covered in ropes, however, to still be seen as beautiful I combined it with a shape from 30's.
