Nordic Giants

We were excited to be asked by Nordic Giants to create an expanded cinema stage design for their Spirit show in Brighton last December. Their performances are at an intersection where live music meets silent cinema, at points the viewer is drawn into the short films through the subtle soundtrack delivered by the band whilst other moments bring the band to your full attention, it becomes difficult to see where the screen stops and the stage begins.

Our job was to further blend the borderlines between screen and stage, to do this we created a stage design that incorporated trees into the stage layout and framed the cinema screen with extending branches.

The trees were arranged at different distances to create depth in the stage and were then projection mapped with both original content and content derived and abstracted from the films that were being exhibited on the central cinema screen.
