Unusual Rigging plays fairy godmother to get Cinderella show-ready! (April 2021)

Set Design

Absolute Motion Control is providing the automation to Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s new production of Cinderella.
The set design by Gabriela Tylesova incorporates two revolves — one 9 metres in diameter, the other 5 metres. There are also several items of flown scenery which are automated using Absolute’s counterweight assist winches.
The show will be programmed and operated using their latest control desk: Desk[Five].

The production will also use Absolute’s position tracking add-on. This allows lighting designer Bruno Poet to program moving lights to follow the path of the scenery precisely as it flies in or out, or turn on the show’s revolves.

Lighting Design

LD Bruno Poet is using tracking devices on the actors as well as the scenic automation system, enabling automated lighting to follow the performers automatically in real-time.
