Breaking the constraints of a conventional theater stage.

Opera increasingly turns to video projection as a way of breaking the constraints of a conventional stage.

The important role of the video projection designer, his relationship with the stage director and set designer as well as his contribution to the development of the dramaturgy of a show, create a new professional orientation with perspectives.

The creative choices that will best serve the direction of a show, in relation to the development of technology, the technical potentials of each theater stage and above all the spectacle, are the challenges of future theater and opera performances.

Projection mapping is an art that is used by artists and designers in order to create optical illusions, and notions of movement onto previously static objects, where the video is commonly combined with or triggered by audio to create an audiovisual narrative.
