The play “The Rashomon Phenomenon” of Anastasia Papastathi unfolds in the Middle Ages. After the trial of a man’s murder, a Monk, a Wig maker lady and a Lumberjack to be safe from the storm that coming, find shelter at the ruins of Rasomon gate. The “Rashomon Phenomenon” tries to pose questions about the relativity of truth and how much each person’s own idea of truth is related with factors like his character, educational level or personal benefit.
We were asked to design the poster and the flyer of the play.
Our idea was affected by the scenario and one of the basic characters of the play, the Lumberjack who is a key character in the story.
We created a Middle Age axe and used photos of the protagonists of the play.
