Contractions Set and Lighting Design

“The darkness of the story strikes the audience unexpectedly and powerfully when it is presented in such a bright and positive visuality.
The contrast between the hell that Emma experiencing and the heaven as the front of the corporation constituted the core concept of my design.”
Taciser Sevinc, 2016

“I like to approach to the text with a feeling of exposing the audience to the environment of the play. This time, we chose to immerse them in an office environment that claims to be providing the maximum comfort for their employee. This was possible with the design of Taciser Sevinc and the assistance of Çagdaş Dilber.”

Çag Çalişkur, 2015

“How far would you go to keep your job? An employee finds her sex life is a matter for the HR department in this sleek-looking drama.
Mike Bartlett’s play, which began life as a short radio drama entitled ‘Love Contract’, was first seen at London’s Royal Court in 2008. At the time, it appeared to be a satirical warning about British human resources departments adopting an American model (…) The employees are required to sign legal disclaimers about sexual relationships in the workplace. Now it appears to be a prophetic metaphor for the climate of fear in which large companies increasingly hold their employees to ransom.”
