La Muerte de un viajante, 2001


Stage set for the play by Arthur Miller. Centro Dramático Nacional, Madrid


Oscar Tusquets Blanca with Anna Mir

Directed by Juan Carlos Pérez de la Fuente, the leading role was played by José Sacristán. The challenge of this modern drama classic has been taken on by the most renowned theatrical designers as well as by several architects. Its main challenge lies in the play's flash-backs, which introduce sudden changes in the plot.

    OTB decided to avoid elaborate sets and to represent the structure of the house, which undergoes various transformations thanks to the backdrops and transparencies created using different types of lighting, with the maximum simplicity. Sacristán praised the set design, which does not constrain the actor's performance, but rather allows him practically to forget his physical surroundings.
