A train carriage spans the width of the proscenium, with the rear wall both being flown out and trucking off. This revealed our rear-projected screen measuring 7.8m x 4.5m, made up of four projectors mounted in portrait pointing upstage and reflected back downstage.

The system was run on a Disguise D3 GX1 media server and all controllable via the network.

My role included rigging and set up of the projection system, network management, programming, pre and post-show checks and operating.

In this amateur production of Anna Karenina, families are falling apart. Rules are being broken. Chaos is imminent. Against the backdrop of 19th century Russia in the midst of extraordinary change, Anna Karenina explores the complex cost of love on the human soul. Award-winning playwright Marina Carr’s fresh and contemporary take on this classic love story is directed by Derek Bond.
