Symphony Hall is set to play host to the most ambitious multimedia event to take place there since its opening in 1991 with a website created by a local agency.
Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring 3D, created by the media artist Klaus Obermaier, is described as “a spectacular fusion of technical innovation, live orchestral performance, digital technology and contemporary dance,” taking place on April 21.
Cogent Elliot is producing an interactive website to go alongside it.
Paul Keene, director of programming at Town Hall and Symphony Hall, said: “The 21st century promises a profound revolution for the arts, as digital technology becomes truly integral to the artistic imagination.
“Klaus Obermaier is one of a new breed of artists pushing back the frontiers by using digital technology to fuse art forms as we know them.
“This mind altering interpretation of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring 3D is ballet, but not as we know it”
Cogent Elliott has created the accompanying website.
Dan Burman, head of digital at the Meriden-based agency, said, “Cogent are delighted and proud to be working with the THSH team and Klaus Obermaier to create a website and other communications that reflect the energy, excitement and innovation of the Rite of Spring 3D performance itself.
“As a growing business in the Midlands we are pleased to be promoting such a key event in the region.”
