Pavelka, Michael (2009) The Good Soul of Szechuan. [Art/Design Item]
|Type of Research:||Art/Design Item|
'The Good Soul of Szechuan' was the last in a series of Brecht plays that Pavelka designed at the Library Theatre Company in Manchester, including 'Galileo', which won 'Best Design' at the Manchester Evening Standard Theatre Awards.
The costumes implied that the story was being played out in an indeterminate and potentially 'forgotten' far-eastern European state in the dying years of the Soviet empire. the different spaces needed to support the play were formed by the ensemble of performers manipulating articulated metal screens. These screens joined to split the vertical space and to echo a Brechtian half-curtain.
