Abstract (Summary)

Tartuffe Lab is an original theatre piece created by German director Eberhard Koehler, his cast and designers. While being involved in the creative process and doing theatrical experiences with all members of the production team, I settled on a set design using the results of those experiences and the word 'lab' as my inspirations. Observing the laboratories and studios around me, I created a Theatre Laboratory on the Queen Mary's Royal Theatre stage using typical laboratory looking elements such as work tables, curtains, blackboards, work lights, and LED screens. Many of the design elements, such as the set tables made out of sawhorses and boards, served a variety of functions for the performers and enhanced the "experimental workshop" look of the set. The set even served as a "performer" to encourage the members of the audience to understand this non-traditional theatrical experience and relate it to their own thinking of hypocrisy.
