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 before Claire's arrival

I wanted the town people's costumes to reflect their identities as it later through they clothes would be stripped away. As I believed the shoes were an important part of the play, by being the first thing to transform I imagined them to be somewhat an identity of the person. Therefore I imagined Claire as the "collector of souls", who throughout the story collects the souls of Gullen.
