Something for your diaries, as next March, there will be another chance to see an impressive video display projected onto the medieval Guildhall building in the City of London.
Building on the of the Magna Carta Son et Lumiere a couple of months ago, Guildhall is hosting another Son et Lumiere, this time celebrating the City’s links to Shakespeare.
Accompanied by music compositions from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, the Dance Porch of Guildhall will be illuminated with 3D projection mapping. This video technology transforms irregularly shaped objects and surfaces into a living display with extraordinary effect.
In association with Guildhall Galleries, the Guildhall Art Gallery and Heritage Gallery will be open until 9pm to enable visitors to view the Shakespeare Deed and First Folio. Also on display will be Visscher’s 1616 engraving, one of the few visual records of the pre-Great Fire city and created in the year of Shakespeare’s death. Alongside the original print will be artist Robin Reynolds’ version of modern London, newly unveiled in 2016 and arranged to fit the Visscher landscape.
The video projection typically lasts around 20 minutes, but they repeat it throughout the evening.
Visit the Guildhall on 4th-5th March 2016, between 6.45pm – 8.45pm (last show beings at approximately 8.15pm). The event is free to watch.
