    from 59 Productions / Added

    59 Productions was commissioned by the annual Sydney winter festival - Vivid LIVE - to create a new artwork for projection onto the sails of Sydney Opera House. The festival rans from 23 MAY - 9 JUNE 2014, on a continuous (15 minute) loop from 6pm to midnight every night. You can see how we made the projections here: https://vimeo.com/97607427 You will see the architect - Utzon's - original concept sketches and blueprints spectacularly become the real, solid architectural phenomenon that is Sydney Opera House today. Our artists have used a huge variety of techniques to bring the building to life, both computer-generated and analogue, not least filming over a dozen scale models of the building being splattered with paint and pigments, melted with heat guns and shattered like ice. Overview: --- This year, you will see the Opera House born again, from its conception and design through the extraordinary construction process, before experimenting with an extraordinarily diverse range of surface finishes, colours and textures. Projecting the building into an imaginary future, it is then subjected to extremes of natural forces and reaches a point of near-destruction, before undergoing a triumphant apotheosis, and beginning it's cosmic journey once again. The story: --- This year's projected artwork whisks the audience on a whirlwind journey that explores the conception and design of the Opera House, through a recreation of the spectacular construction process to completion. The magnificent building can then be seen expressing itself in a high-octane dance and light sequence, experimenting with texture, colour, costume and even its own haircut, before being doused in brightly coloured paints and inks, and showered in raw pigment. In the third act, a cataclysmic storm and extremes of weather and climate put the building to its greatest test, before reaching its apotheosis, atomising into cosmic form before reforming and beginning its cycle once again. --- Music Credits: Explosions in the Sky: 'First Breath After Coma' Public Service Broadcasting: 'Inform, Educate, Entertain' Ratatat: 'Drugs' Atlas: 'Battles' Vivaldi: 'Summer' from 'The Four Seasons' Performed by Fabio Biondi and Europa Galante Joby Talbot: 'Confluence' from 'Tide Harmonic' http://www.59productions.co.uk

                    "Vivimos en la barbarie por la degradación de los valores sustituídos ahora por los intereses. La crisis es la consecuencia de poner el beneficio por encima de todos los valores....es necesario que el poder pase a otras manos". José Luis Sampedro habla del desempleo, la globalización, europa y la crisis y nos dice que el primer paso es la toma de conciencia y la educación de las futuras generaciones con el objetivo de alcanzar la libertad de pensamiento, no una simple libertad de expresión de la mente colonizada.

                      For nearly a decade 59 Productions has been working with director Katie Mitchell on a theatrical technique called "Live Cinema", in which a seamless, cinematic-quality film is shot in real-time on stage in front of a theatre audience. This short film documents the process of bringing one such production to fruition. Forbidden Zone - which premiered at the Salzburg Festival in July 2014 - is arguably the most ambitious and complex of these pieces to date. With multiple narratives crossing two time zones, the piece tells the story of Fritz Haber, the inventor of the very first chemical weapons during the First World War, and the effect that it had on his family over three generations. With video direction by 59's Leo Warner, the piece includes elaborate film and stage sets (designed by Lizzie Clachan), which include several detailed period rooms, as well as a moving 1940's Chicago subway train that is brought to life through elaborate sound, lighting and in-camera effects. ------- CREATIVE TEAM Duncan Macmillan, Writer Katie Mitchell, Director Leo Warner, Video Director Lizzie Clachan, Set Designer Sussie Juhlin-Wallen, Costume Designer Finn Ross, Video Designer Gareth Fry, Melanie Wilson, Sound Designers Jack Knowles, Lighting Designer ------ CAST Kate Duchêne, Andreas Schröders, Scientist Ruth Marie Kröger, Clara Haber Jenny König, Claire Haber Felix Römer, Fritz Haber Giorgio Spiegelfeld, French Soldier Andreas Hartmann, Stefan Kessissoglou, Camera Sebastian Pircher, Camera / American Soldier ----- www.59productions.co.uk ----- includes music from "Plainsong", composed by Valgeir Sigurðsson
