Design Statement

Legendary W. Shakespeare’s play, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream“ got lighter and modernized look and feel over summer months of 2016 at Tallinn City Theatre. According to director Jaanus Rohumaa, all of the events of this play are taking place around the year 2016 and not in the distance abstract past. That approach had to be emphasized by the set design, costumes and music. The production was staged in a blackbox where physical objects had to stay at the same place, although they could change their meaning and function during the show.

Set designers’ take on these topics and constrains was to strip down all the decorations and narrative elements, which left us with pure functional and fundamental shapes. Since physical objects didn’t carry meaning by themselves, it was left to the actors to apply it on them. For example, the same rope structure had to play forest or a modern chandelier at the villa in the later stage of the play......
