Projection Sphere at Ruhrtriennale 2011, Tristan and Isolde

Tristan and Isolde: Ruhrtriennale 2011

Oh so creative Pufferfish partners Satis&Fy AG deployed a PufferSphere XXL projection system with 4m diameter projection screen as a central feature of the impressive stage set for “Tristan and Isolde” by Richard Wagner at Ruhrtriennale 2011.

That made it possible to place the projector behind the sphere – totally invisible for the audience. Moreover that special flyware enabled the sphere to be moved in x/y axis across the complete stage set. Utilising a special “black” high contrast projection screen that had been custom-built for this production and with close attention to...
