Breekbaar (‘Fragile’) is the title of a play by Dutch theatre company De Vloot. The story revolves around a family of five brothers and sisters, long estranged, but reunited due to their parents’ deaths. The evening before the funeral, they spend the evening packing their parents’ belongings in boxes, talking and drinking. This dark comedy reveals the fragility and humour in sibling relationships.
For the photography and poster design (left), a contrast was chosen between fragility and boldness. By using a small open box on a light background, in contrast with the bold lettering, a balance was sought between the topics of the performance. For the flyer (right), a full bold typography was chosen.
