Holo-Gauze delivers projection effects for Albarn’s wonder.land

Holo-Gauze has supplied the video projection effects for Damon Albarn’s modern musical reimagining of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. The show’s projections are by 59 Productions, with Lysander Ashton acting as creative director.

Appearing at Manchester’s Palace theatre until 12 July as part of the Manchester International Festival, wonder.land is a co-production between National Theatre artistic director Rufus Norris, scriptwriter Moira Buffini and Albarn, who wrote the score. The musical is set to transfer to London’s National Theatre from 27 November.

In wonder.land, Lewis Carroll’s fantasy world becomes an online game, to which Aly, who is bullied at school and unhappy at home, escapes. You can watch a trailer, showing some examples of the visual effects projected onto Holo-Gauze, below.

“I am delighted that wonder.land’s producers and 59 Productions opted to use Holo-Gauze to help realise their visual effects,” said Holo-Gauze founder and Holotronica MD Stuart Warren-Hill. “Holo-Gauze is the ideal solution for live events, allowing participants to make presentations behind our near-invisible gauze while informative and entertaining holographic effects appear to float in front and around them – as seen in the wonder.land trailer.”
