L'albero della felicità (The Tree of Happiness) is a narrative performance, using video holograms, based on a splendid traditional Polish fairy tale "The Magic Apple Tree". This work, created for children and dedicated to parents, lasts approximately 55 minutes.
The characters of the story, who are shown through a “little holographic theatre”, appear in 3D graphics as an “alternative” way to make use of some of the programmes normally employed for the creation of characters and situations in video games. This allows theatre to take advantage of the potential of new digital narration technologies. The aesthetics of computer graphics, so familiar to digital natives, are used both to illustrate an ancient fairy tale and to renew the tradition of the “storyteller” and “puppet theatre” in a manner oriented toward the future of theatre.
