Kafka’s short story “In the Penal Colony” is a tale about an ominous machine which tortures and kills prisoners according to the rules of a gruesome legal system. An artistically designed font is the key concept for the depiction of the machine on stage. Different text passages were rearranged into a projected circular grid. On stage, this “font swarm” encircles the actors, creeps towards them and ultimately covers them completely. The typography strikingly embodies the feeling of an overly powerful, impalpable threat, which is inherent in the play.
