more catch up from summer 2015
The first to dare to dream was Teju Kareem @zmirage in Lagos Nigeria- he took me on a huge adventure. He decided to produce wole Soyinka’s play Dance of the Forrest to celebrate the Nobel prize winning poet & play write’s 80th birthday.
No usual production this one Kareem dug out a 1000 seat amphi theatre In the bush behind the home of the poet.
I took a number of projectors & a catalyst system to the bush & mapped the scenery & a 4Oft LED screen high on the mountain.
Only a few pictures of the production period have survived, since during the build I managed to contract malaria & was heavily sedated during the show, not an experience I’d like to repeat.
However, I’m assured the show did go on to wide acclaim.
can’t wait to go back
Liam rich @culteventsteam in Chelmsford dared to ask…
Liam needed free lighting and projection to help build the profile of @flingfest.
We were able to take him lights & projectors. As part of the project we instigated #flingproject where we took a group of students from Chelmsford college, & over the course of three days they learnt to rig & program intelligent lighting.
The culmination of the event was the participants operating & running the main stage right up to & including the headline act The Dub Pistols.
