« Serenata : Night time disturbance  » (definition by Boisrobert 1646)


Creating a game

We wish to set the encounter of three different worlds :

Mythological symbolism of Alexander the Great's Macedonia  : using the images of the great myths to render visually the universality of the quest of happiness and the philosophies developed in the piece. 

The Baroc liveliness of young Mozart : using the music as the emotional  medium but also referring visually to grotesque and baroque arts in paintings and architecture. 

Video Games, mangas and futurism of our  génération : using robots, super powers, cartoon and manga's elements or video game landscapes as influences for costumes, set, and lighting.

Three different codifications, seen with our thirty year old eyes,  raised with Transformers, Mario Bros,  Space Invaders or Bioman.

At stakes are the quests: of power,  of Love.  One must choose a path, fulfill a mission, join the princess : universal ambitions, collective and individual of all times. 

We aim at rendering on a stage the virtuality of the game, its strong images, its rules, its obstacles and bonuses, to express the surreality and the exemplarity of the characters. And leave to the music the care to express its humanity.

By using the system of platform games of the years 1980-90s, we shall exaggerate the reality and render in space the threats and the obstacles, politically and emotionally. With the ironic and amused eye of a 19 year old Mozart. 

Il Re pastore is a serenata. A « nighttime disturbance »,  defines Boisrobert.

This is precisely what we aimed at staging, a night time disturbance :  noisy, disturbing some, amusing others, and often creating the desire to join the party.
