The play Brand was staged at the Staatstheater Stuttgart, Germany and became the subject of the production of Schauspiel 2003 a three-screen video installation produced during a residency at Schloss Akademie Solitude. The stage design and production were exceptionally minimal with a white stage floor reaching forward into the auditorium and extending back stage whilst at times being elevated to a 45 degree angle. The minimal stage set was complimented by a scenography that consisted of a series of lighting phases which were reminiscent of natural atmospheres such as sunsets and sunrise. Hence the photographs were conceived in reference to abstract and minimal painting.
Brand is a play by the Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. It is a verse tragedy, written in 1865 and first performed in Stockholm, Sweden on 24 March 1867.
