Andreas Kriegenburg’s stage design works on two levels: a wall just a few metres behind the front edge of the stage creates a claustrophobically close front stage, into which an initially upright revolving stage is built. When this is lowered, a further space opens to the rear.
The staging was completely microphoned and amplified so that the actors could strike a non-declamatory note. I translated the perspectives of the stage design into different sound levels: the play on the front stage was amplified by a conventional front sound system, while the play on the revolving stage seemed to come out of the funnel as a phantom source with loudspeakers around the funnel.
The play of the levels (the actors could move from the forestage to the revolving stage and back) could thus find its full counterpart in the sound.
