Creators of everything from museum installations (David Bowie is, V&A), to large scale events (video designers for London Olympics opening ceremony), 59 Productions’ portfolio is one of the most impressive and varied around. Founded in 2006, 59 Productions has established itself as one of the world’s leading creators of video projection design for all types of performance. They’ve created visual content and technical design work for many of the world’s greatest venues, including: the National Theatre, English National Opera, the Royal Opera House, The Metropolitan Opera New York, Lincoln Center, the Salzburg Festival, Schaubuhne Berlin and the Sydney Opera House, as well as for productions in the West End and on Broadway.

We’re thrilled to be joined, at this free event, by Richard Slaney (Creative Director) and Zsolt Balogh (Animation Director), who will discuss the various projects 59 Productions undertake and the vital role that animation plays within their work.
