digiStage – digital theater stage lighting system

DigiStage is WHITEvoids video projector based digital stage lighting system. The system was initially commissioned for the theater play “Fanny and Alexander” by theater director Sebastian Hartmann. The piece inspired by Ingmar Bergmans movie premiered in September 2011 at Leipzigs Central Theater.
WHITEvoid designed a projector based digital lighting system with integrated depth camera tracking to pixel map the whole stage area of about 120m2. Since the theater play used a flexible scene order, we enabled the lighting designer to select or deselect actors on the fly via remote. This way making them active or inactive as triggers for digital light follower effects and generative visuals. Multiple effects can be assigned to individual actors in almost infinite combinations.
