Shakespeare Son et Lumiere

This event has finished Took place on: Saturday, 5th Mar 2016

 Free

In a collaboration between Guildhall Library and Guildhall School of Music & Drama, and building on the success of the Magna Carta Son et Lumiere in 2015, Guildhall is hosting another Son et Lumiere, 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.
