“The secret of Ganjoor” is the first digital, interactive game-theater for children in Iran. We call it ‘game-theater’ because it is a mixture of digital game and theater. It’s also interactive so four representatives of children step-up on the scene to help Ganjoor (The main role of the theater) in his quest, also others among the audience could help them from far away; as the children decide how to solve riddles, break the spells and finally pass the pathway to the next level.
The play of this game-theater is based on Iranian mythology. The story is about Ganjoor and Palasht.
Palasht is a demon [the name suggests such a connotation] and how he has stolen the happiness from the hearts of people, and Ganjoor – a ten year old boy – is the only one who can defeat him, because the spell of Palasht [can only work on grown-ups and not the children].
*A reproduction for performing in different languages can be easily possible in a short time interval, also some of the actors are already able to speak a foreign language or two.
