Commissioned by the Barangaroo Development Authority (a division of the NSW State Government) Mandylights worked with creature workshop Erth to develop a completely new theatrical experience as part of Vivid Sydney – the world’s largest festival of light. The multi-hour experience featured a dramatically lit custom made puppet that towered some six metres into the air, internally illuminated by over three hundred individually controlled LED pixels. The creature’s lighting was controlled wirelessly and locally by puppeteers, with controls overridden for a dramatic show sequence, where Mandylights designed and installed some sixty custom outdoor moving light fixtures, all rigged on custom made tower systems. Mandylights provided complete technical design, installation and operation for the month long festival which operated flawlessly throughout almost every type of weather imaginable.
