Art and Technology
To Tell Amazing Stories
Who we are
59 Productions is an award-winning team of creative people that makes imaginative work for audiences of all kinds. The company’s designers, writers, directors, architects, animators, visual artists and technologists work together to produce artistic work in a range of disciplines. From architectural projection mapping to exhibition design; from VR experiences to events; from theatrical design to technical consultancy, 59’s team combines art and technology to tell amazing stories.
To celebrate Edinburgh International Festival’s 70th Anniversary, 59 Productions created an epic outdoor spectacle, transforming St Andrew’s Square into a magical night garden, using light, sound and large-scale projection. For this year’s opening event, visitors were able to stroll around the Square as the buildings burst into life – immersing themselves in a fast moving world of colour, texture and sound.
The Guggenheim Bilbao XX Celebration
The Guggenheim Bilbao is the building that changed the fortunes of a city, and made Bilbao one of the cultural centres of Europe. This architectural icon and bastion of high art turns 20 in October 2017, and has commissioned a new piece from 59 Productions to celebrate that anniversary. Using entirely original music, sound, light and projection, Frank Gehry’s astonishing titanium-clad building will be augmented and transformed over a series of nights in a spectacle accessible to citizens of Bilbao and tourists alike. The technical and creative challenges make this on of 59’s most exciting commissions to date.
