Inspired by Zen sand gardens, this rectilinear design
echoed the shape of the black box and created a welcoming space for both audience and actors.
It was a tactile design: rice paper walls, ground cork standing in for a sand-filled stage, trickling water fountains, both rough-cut and smooth stones, even a little incense respite.
