The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Wow, what a production! I write these words after the play celebrated its' 300 performance, which is completely not taken for granted by me. It seems like all those calculations, marks, and pedantic punctualities that characterized working with director Gilad Kimchy and set designer Eran Atzmon, weren't for nothing.
The idea of the video art production was attempting to imitate the inner world of Christopher, a boy with Asperger's syndrome. For that end, I created colorless and detailed video artwork, in an attempt to force chaos into a pattern. The cold, alienated result, aspires to articulate the boy's mental difficulties.
On the technical side, we worked with an exact mapping which we built on a laser-cut maquette created out of drawings of the stage. The goal was to locate 856 cubes, each in its' exact location on stage, creating a three-dimensional illusion of depth.
A play based on the book of Mark Haddon, written by Simon Stephens.
