The theme of the 11th Norwegian Storytelling Festival was "POWER" ( "MAKT" in Norwegian) It was hosted at Dramatikkens Hus in Oslo from the 29th of May to the 1st of June 2014.
All the stories told during the festival was, in very different ways, connected to the theme "POWER".
To make a scenography that would also stick to the same theme, but at the same time fit all the different consepts and stories told, I tried to first define for my self the visual aspects of the therm "MAKT" (which is more narrow than the english word "power". which also include strength) before starting the prossess of designing the stage.
These words to me visually represent "MAKT" :
- Tall (makes human feel small)
- Different apperance from different angles
