Act 2: Latin Quarter
Act two mimics the Parisian lifestyle and the small swooping streets bring in the twists and turns of the city. The star configuration of the paris footprint was inspiration for the design, where the buildings converge at small intersections. The tall buildings move into a smaller perspective upstage and using the theatrical technique to make the back street seem further away. The majority of the stage is the street scene with the carts and many different people. The walls create a barrier that acts as a street with charming towering Parisian buildings. Cafe momus is set into the building and fragmented to seem like they are still inside but have a large section of stage to house the cafe.
Cart Design and Design Elevation
Act 3 is a stark winter land that mimics the romanticism paintings of the 1800s and the curvature of the trees bring in naturalism and the deep stage provides a perspective and a stark environment of a vast wasteland. The cold winter storm is supposed to be a pivotal point in Mimi’s story when she comes to the inn. The inn was inspired by small chateau in france and the charming yet small nature of them brings in the classical design aspects into the design while staying simple with a cool tone of stone ties in with the cold nature of the act.
