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.

Town's people during transformation.

In the play town people sell themselves out to Claire and her entourage by buying new items. One is mentioned quite heavily, as the Ill sees most of them wearing new yellow shoes. I realised then that yellow can be seen as fake gold. I imagined the town people to becomes commercialised, without identities, which I wanted to reflect in their costumes. With their transformation they would slowly become one mass. I hoped to show that with them all waring the same expensive yellow shoes.
