When UFO was asked to supply 4 of our high powered Pulsar light sources for a dazzling and innovative set design we were very excited. We knew our Pulsar's light output was extremely bright, but in this project they are pushed to new heights.
The fibre optics form the main focal point of the set design and were envisioned and created by TK Hay, who was recently named as Best Designer in the Stage Debut Awards 2022. TK Hay has used over one-and-half miles of glowing fibre optic cable to create a web of light that surrounds actors Carla Harrison-Hodge and Emilio Iannucci in Nick Payne’s Constellations, which was performed at the SJT in Scarborough.
The Pulsar's colour changing effects bring the fibre to life and produces a mesmerising effect that needs to be seen to be believed.
The set design has created its own challenges for the SJT’s production manager, Denzil Hebditch, and technical manager Tigger Johnson. Denzil says: “Working with fibre optics in this way wasn't something we had done before and we were concerned that we would struggle to achieve TK's vision but the results have been pretty spectacular!”
Constellations won the Best New Play award at the 2012 Evening Standard Awards, making Nick Payne the youngest ever winner of the award. It was also nominated for several Olivier Awards, including for SJT Associate Artist Simon Slater’s music score, which will be used in the SJT production.
