Commissioned by The Edinburgh International Festival.
Standard Life Opening Event: Bloom, 59 Productions transforms not only a single building but uses the facades around St Andrew Square in Edinburgh’s New Town to create a vast canvas for projection-mapped animations. The Square becomes an immersive environment of colour, texture, sounds and sensations that places the audience at the centre of a visually stunning digital constellation allowing them time and space to explore. This visual spectacle will be accompanied by a soundscape by composer and musician Nick Powell who among his extensive theatre credits has written the score for many popular shows at the International Festival in the past including Lanark and The Wonderful World of Dissocia.
Tens of thousands of people are expected to experience Standard Life Opening Event: Bloom over its two night run at the opening of the Edinburgh International Festival.
