COSTUME and SET DESIGN
The children’s story takes place on a lighthouse island where two friends Tahvo doggie and Bella cat live happily with Bella’s owner. The director’s vision was to embed recycling and eco scenography theme in the setting, so the lighthouse was built by recycled plastic bottles. In addition, we had other recycled materials in the set and some of the knitted costumes included plastic bags from the wardrobe department staff’s homes.
