The director and designer chose to represent the Giver's realm of knowledge as a wall of blank strips of vellum. We concealed this environment with a pair of imposing, multi-purpose scenic walls installed in a "V" configuration.
One young actor was able move an entire wall unit due to our simple wagon and pivot assembly, so only two crew members were needed to accomplish the wall shifts whenever locations changed.
The below video shows the units in motion.
