It was quite a challenge and a new approach for the Swiss Cultural Fund UK to support the set costume design of a show. We liked the idea of an international collaboration to bring new theatre writing from Europe to a British public. This “Globetrotting Comedy” by Philipp Löhle directed by Tanja Pagnuco was an occasion for the designer artist to showcase her talent. The effectiveness of Martina Trottmann’s costumes, fabrics and ideas complemented the play brilliantly. The uncanny plot forced a charmed audience to explore the associations between character and events in a globalized world.
