Blood on the cat's neck                Reiner Werner Fassbinder         

In this venture into playwriting Fassbinder presents a character of unknown origin decides to observe the behaviour of human beings. The scenes are numerous and short, and are located in different parts of a contemporary city: a bus, a bar, a bedroom, a stair, a room, an office, a bathroom, the entrance to a club and a park bench.

The premises of the staging required a scenography able to adapt to different theatres and easily  transported on tour to several cities. The first scene is the earth (a painted curtain). The curtain opens but the shape of the planet remains, and within it, all the spaces of the representation. The central staircase is the first element to install, the angle of the disposition of the two halves of the scenery  being defined by the length of the proscenium. Despite covering all the places during the performance, the light  focuses on the different ambiences, creating the appropriate spaces without disruption of scene  changes.
