Concept: The show was set in the Carribean in a "back then" setting with a roughly baroque vibe. The set used curved platforms in a yin/ yang design that created interesting curved diagonals for blocking, and helped define different areas within a unit set. I wanted to create a world that was somewhat "upside down" and operated on different rules than the one Viola and Sebastian came from, yet closely related. I used classical architecture with upsidedown columns, and played some architecture games with the furniture to achieve this effect. I used the architecture of Havana to inspire the color palette and create a classical yet tropical world for this comedy to play in. Orsino and Olivia's courts were defined by their different archway.
