Design Statement

A space for fairytale has been created that presents a distinctly non-naturalistic, synthetic world. The central object is a mountain - a cupola - stretching almost completely across the entire revolving stage. Appearing as a blue forest initially, inside the dome a surprising world within is revealed. The "summit" of the mountain comprises a hatch door where it is possible to slip inside and so end up within the realm of the dwarfs: Dome architecture with playground slides, hammocks, cushions, strange small furniture and machines, strong warm colours and a picnic. Life here is above all relaxed and emphatically fun - the perfect alternative to the world of Snow White's stepmother and her obsession with style and success. A child reviewer exclaimed 'I would happily live like this too!'

In order to strengthen the model-like impression of the forest, the trees in reduced geometrical form together with the ground are covered in roughly textured, very strong three-dimensional mesh.
