The set's circus theme was derived from Stéphane's impression that Lucrèce and Alphonse are like wild cats ready to tear each other apart. The show played outdoors on a circle of sand. For the costumes, I loosely interpreted the early 15th c. The powerful Gubetta, dressed in red, the colour of power in Italian Renaissance Church dress, is a ringleader. The men's trunk-hose appears later in the Renaissance but the director and I agreed it would dress the actors better. The pinked and slashed suits are made from fake leather. There is fake fur on the Borgia couple's plated fronts.
