This is the documentation of WHITEvoids video projector based digital stage lighting system. The system was initially commissioned for the theater play "Fanny and Alexander" by theater director Sebastian Hartmann. The piece inspired by Ingmar Bergmans movie premiered in September 2011 at Leipzigs Central Theater and will be on show until May 2012.
WHITEvoid designed a projector based digital lighting system with integrated depth camera tracking to pixel map the whole stage area of about 120m2. This includes a large scale Neo Rauch painting as a backdrop. Since the theater play used a flexible scene order, we enabled the lighting designer to select or deselect actors on the fly via remote. This way making them active or inactive as triggers for digital light follow effects and generative visuals. Multiple effects can be assigned to individual actors in almost infinite combinations. Additionally virtual "light agents" are autonomously interacting with the real actors on stage.
