Artist Marina Abramović designed this concert performance of “The Goldberg Variations” with the intent that it be a completely immersive experience that garnered full attention from the attendees. Working with PRG scenic, we installed a tracking turntable upon which Igor Levit performed the piece. The platform tracked from one end of the drill hall to the other at the beginning of the piece, then the turntable completed a single 360 degree rotation over the course of the entire concert to mesmerizing effect.
Lighting Designer Urs Schönebaum tasked us to create a single, perfectly straight line of light around the perimeter of the drill hall, which served as the only illumination of the space.
