The work i was responsible for was the realisation of the Set/Stage design and Lighting Design for the performance.
i realised the 3D design sketches, lead and work with the construction team to build the Set design with snow and ice.
I planned the lighting designed, set it up with the lighting cie, and operated the lights during the performance.

The set design is an adaptation of the Sami labyrinth/maze pattern.
It takes 21m Ø, made with snow walls of 1m high, with ice blocks embedded of 1m to 1m50 high.

Some images of construction.
