The play is divided into two main sections: Act 1 takes plays on stage in a theatrical conventional way. The lighting brief for this part, was to recreate the black and white world of Kurosawa’s movie. We aimed for a “no-shadows” effect on stage, that created a solid, recognizable atmosphere, a direct reference to the movie. Act 2 takes place on different locations and had to be the complete opposite of Act 1. Saturated hues, dense smoke and real fire “recreated” the dark alleys of Tokyo, transferring the audience into the world of Kurosawa.
