Info & Credits

With a lake-stage in Bregenz Austria, Es Devlin has created an astonishing set design for Carmen, a production by Kasper Holten. The design concept came about when Ms Devlin and Holten met after a visit to Seville and they tossed cards in the air to represent the fate Carmen feels about not being able to escape. Like many of Ms Devlin’s designs this design takes on a massive scale with each card 30sg metres in area, thrown between hans 30 metres apart, with one hand holding a cigarette 6 metres long. On this huge set Luke Halls was asked to project a design to further develop the visualisation of the story. The show was performed to an audience of 7,000 watching from the lakeside amphitheatre as part of the Bregenz Festival.
