The stage design sets the tone of a show but its ability to be unobtrusive is probably its most important function. Each setting is merely a visual place and time locator, not a story in itself. The setting must be vibrant, alive, visually stunning and fully functional within the constraints of the individual theatre, but it must never be the focus of attention - that must always be the domain of the performer. The set must add to a performance, not distract. It must give, not take.
