A great start to the new year! January took us to The Barbican Theatre with The Royal Ballet and their production of Les Enfants Terribles. We created a stand out feature of the production, a high resolution absolute tracking system for the impressive moving set, which combined with a pair of D3 media servers ensured that the video projections mapped onto the stage scenery perfectly, even at an angle.
“Some of the narrative burden is taken by video (Tal Rosner), projected on screens that wrap around the back and sides of the stage. These supply captions (“The Game”), weather conditions (that snow scene), and a wall of unblinking eyes (memorable). The entire course of Lise’s courtship with the man she will marry is encapsulated in a video that shows their repeated greetings, progressing from formal to warm to amorous. It’s not only a moment of light relief, but a clever nod to Glass’s compositional process – that of modulated repetition.” Jenny Gilbert – The Arts Desk .
