Scene 1.1 - As the audience enters, the Captain's chair sits in an isolated pool of light near the front of the stage; the rest of the stage is in darkness.
Transition 1.1 - 1.2 (1) - As scene 1.1 ends, the Captain exits followed by Wozzeck with the chair; trees of twisted fabric push up through the ground and start to ascend.
Transition 1.1 - 1.2 (2) - As trees grow higher, projections slowly fade up, cast mainly on the trees but also spilling onto the floor in places. The back wall remains in shadow; the corner of the cube fades in.
Scene 1.2 - The trees now reach from the stage floor to above the Pros where they fade into darkness; the projection continues to slowly mutate. As Wozzeck sees 'red fire' red petals (projected) glide down all surfaces and pool at his feet; only he sees these.
Transition 1.2 - 1.3 - As Wozzeck and Andres leave the stage, lights fade up. As women - whores and townsfolk - enter from SL they pull the fabric trees down like washing, collect them up and take them off SR.
Scene 1.3 - The fabric is hung 'window' to 'window' like banners before soldiers march from behind the cube, SR to SL. Marie peers out from her room in the shadow of the cube.
