A unique light installation to celebrate 50 years of Peterlee's Apollo Pavilion

Victor Pasmore's Apollo Pavilion, one of Britain's most famous examples of Brutalist art is 50 this year. As part of Durham County's celebrations, we produced Apollo 50, a mesmerising artwork by Berlin-based artists, Mader Wiermann. Their video-mapped light sequence accompanied by a gentle, undulating soundscape transformed Pasmore's iconic design over the course of two nights. 

The event launched our new education programme, 'Lift Off' for young people in the local area in partnership with Guildhall School of Music and Drama's BA course in Video Design for Live Performance.
