The story of Elektra has endured through time for the reason that it has an unimaginable magnet and power. I was especially moved by its archetypical symbolism. It was essential for me to bring out this aspect in scenography. I was fascinated in the topic of choice and duty. The ancient protagonists of the drama are stuck between their own emotional imperatives and a determined fate predicted by the oracle. My intention was to distort the picture, split it in two, blur what is true and what is illusion. The set design consists of two identical platforms reflected as in the mirror. However the right side does not equal the absolutely left side. Each has its own dynamics and sound.
Sound and music form the hidden nerve of this set. Root stringed instruments are inscribed in the burnt ground and the roots of the platforms. On the pedestal, on the other hand, there are two large harps, divided and broken pieces of a whole that cannot be bonded together. This concept symbolizes the damaged and broken relations inside the Atreides family.
And it all happens during a sinister solstice, when a massive moon obscures the sun, taking away light and common sense from people. I am returning to my favorite topic of how nature and the element influence the constituted rational world of people.
