Set Design for

"Paipito Querido"

Project Overview

 

Commisioned by "El Teatro DF", we had the task of designing the set for their upcoming play "Papito Querido". A comedy where a divorced dad dresses up as his wife to meet the conservative parents of her daughter's boyfriend, since they would, in no way, accept that their future daughter-in-law be the daughter of divorced parents.

 

The repeated visits between the characters occurs in the father's home, which was the main setting for the play. Here we will show you the idea come to life from the initial sketches to the realized set designed by Emiliano Zurita Bach.

Set Design "Paipito Querido"

 

The set was designed in a way that would convey the feeling of a luxurious apartment. Just as important as the aesthetics of the set where the ways it could be entered. These included the kitchen door, the hallway to the rest of the house, the main entrance, and the balcony that allowed characters to sneak in and out of the house when the comical situations called for it.

The final product

 

 

Designing the space for a comedy means creating an atmosphere of joy, mischief, and vibrancy, achieved mainly through the colorful lighting and arrangement of the space to allow continuous flow for the characters. After all, if you're watching a comedy, you expect the environment to add a little something to the fun.
