Recreating the effects from ‘The Flying Dutchman’ – The 1958 production of ‘The Flying Dutchman’ at Sadler’s Wells, was one of the iconic uses of theatrical FX projection. Shane Guy’s installation (which runs for ~15 minutes) aims to recreate all the effects from the initial storm, the arrival of the Dutchman’s ship and the finale. This uses seventeen projectors with a range of effect units, many currently unavailable including the chromatrope, waves and hand operated lightning.

Following the piece there will be the opportunity for questions on the recreation, the equipment, and the wider research project which is exploring traditional effects projection and attempting to catalogue as much of the British past inventory, of equipment, as possible.
