Housed in a Grade II* listed old town hall built in 1893, Battersea Arts Centre is a place where artists, audience participants and staff can play a role in inventing the future of theatre.
For a six-week London run, Battersea Arts Centre re-staged Orpheus in the building’s Grand Hall.
Orpheus forms part of Battersea Arts Centre’s Gods, Myths and Legends season featuring mythical characters catapulted into modern day settings. The epic co-production by Little Bulb Theatre ran from 8 April until 17 May 2014 and told the thrilling tale of Orpheus’ ill-fated descent into the underworld, set to a live score of hot club jazz, opera and French chanson.
In preparation for the show, Battersea Arts Centre needed a bright, robust projector that could create stunning images on stage that would dazzle audiences seated across the 150 square metre hall.
The organisation is also increasing the breadth and frequency of its programming for the Grand Hall and needed a projector that could cater for a wide variety of applications and content.
And it needed to be cost-effective and reliable.
Thomas Mindenhall, Senior Technician from Battersea Arts Centre, said: “We needed a new and better quality projector for a range of exciting productions before they head off on international tours.”
