The public can see the interior through the panes of a large window, which have been simulated with grey BGO - Gobelin tulle.The wall, a real materialized fourth wall, was covered with the film PBL - Blackout print digital that simulates wood and that, rising, dissolves ...
... allowing the public to witness what happens inside, returning to being a conventional fourth wall.It can be noticed how Minnie's entire house was built with six gigantic panels ...
... made with the same technique as the external one that was raised.The panels were designed by set designer Luis F. Carvalho ...
... with forms of scalene trapezoids which, installed with irregular inclinations, create a false, destabilizing and wide-angled perspective.The digital printing of the planks and the grain of the wood supports the false perspective.
The choice of the PBL - Blackout film instead of the ASC - Sceno printat digital muslin to cover the panels ...
... is dictated by the need to clean up the panels after each performance of this scene ...
... in which some red and thick liquid, which evidently represents the blood being shed, is made to flow along the walls for dramatic needs.The liquid would have irreparably damaged the muslin.
