MOSÈ IN EGITTO

VIDEO MAPPING CONTENT

In 2018, Teatro Verdi in Pisa commissioned Imaginarium Creative Studio to produce video mapping content for the set design of Gioachino Rossini's MOSÈ IN EGYPT for the 2018/2019 opera season.

IL CONCEPT​​​​​​​

After meetings with set designer Valentina Bressan and artist Jose Yaque, we began to produce a series of digital content that would help the viewer understand the semantics of the scene related to the concept of the migration of peoples in the various. We worked on the idea of flow, understood as a stream of consciousness, a migratory flow that starts from the past and proceeds into the future. Our history and our future characterize our present. Everything is in flux; man himself is in flux. The events of history have repeatedly tried to stop the movement of the flow, hindering the growth of a people, risking leading them to their extinction, as the story of the diatribe between Jews and Egyptians tells.

To narrate this drama, we have placed on the scene the projection of a flow characterized by two phases: from a movement of continuous flow that at times runs aground in the columns present because the peoples leave signs of their passage, we have moved on to a flow that stops and stagnates at the moment of confrontation, thus blocking any possibility of a future.

THE TECHNIQUE

The digital content created was intended for the scenic elements and the singer's body (body mapping). The technique used for body mapping allowed the singer to move freely on the stage without position constraints. This is due to the use of the Kinect sensor.

An interesting detail of this project was our choice to implement an interactive video mapping, managed following the score and orchestral direction. We used a MIDI controller to interact and give examples of the elements' brightness, speed, opacity, and size.
