    from 59 Productions / Added

    15 minutes of highlights from the Dress Rehearsal of Hampton Court REWIND, a light, sound, projection and pyrotechnics event directed and produced by 59 Productions on behalf of Historic Royal Palaces, to launch a season celebrating 500 years of Hampton Court Palace: You are invited to travel through time on a journey spanning 500 years of Hampton Court Palace history. The palace’s south facade will be brought to spectacular life with a dramatic display of projection-mapped animation, music and pyrotechnics. Beginning in 1515, before Cardinal Wolsey started his major building project, you will see the evolution of the palace in the hands of Henry VIII and the Tudor dynasty, witness the planned destruction of the palace by an ambitious William III and his Queen Mary II, and the eventual modification of the Tudor architecture into the Baroque East and South wings which stand to this day. You will be taken on a soaring flight over the beautiful palace gardens and through the famous maze, before joining the rush of visitors to the palace when Queen Victoria threw its doors open to the public in 1838. The explosive finale - set to music by Underworld - will see the palace come to life as never before, celebrating its place as a jewel in London’s 21st Century landscape.

        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
