The play “Andorra” written by Max Frisch revolves around the young Andri, told to be the Jewish adoptive son of a teacher, who tells to have rescued him from the anti-Semitic neighbors. During the play it gets revealed that Andri’s origin was a lie, but no one in town wants to believe it anymore. He becomes the victim of anti- Semitic harassment by the fellow citizens. Finally, the tragedy ends with Andri being killed by invading troops because of his faith.

The entire play takes place within several indoor situations and the main city square of Andorra. The spatial limitations of the stage asked for a simple solution, allowing several entrances and configurations. Through a set of fixed and movable walls and furniture, the stage was able to adhere to the change of scenes and locations of the play. Eliminating blackouts, all sets where configured by the actors on stage, and transformed throughout the play.
