HAWTHORN LIGHT UP THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME’ INTERNATIONAL TOUR

POSTED ON 02/08/2017

Having taken the UK by storm, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is going international, and we're once again supplying lighting equipment for the award-winning production.

The international leg of the Curious tour will visit Amsterdam, Toronto and other international cities to be announced. 

We're continuing our relationship with the production after supplying lighting for this year’s UK tour, working with renowned Lighting Designer Paule Constable to supply the lighting equipment for her Olivier award winning design. This included supplying industry workhorses such as the Martin MAC TW1 and the ETC Source 4 Revolution combined with newer technology such as the ETC LUSTR 2 LED Profile and the VL3500Q Spot.

The remaining rig is made up of a number of conventional ETC Source 4 profiles and PARS, Selecon Arena 2.5K PCs, Rainbow 12” Scrollers, a Martin Atomic Strobe, Pulsar Chroma LED UV Floods, Studio Due Archibars, Viper smoke machines all controlled from an ETC networked system utilising both the GIO and ION consoles.

Hailed by The Times as ‘a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle’, the National Theatre’s production is based on the 2003 book by Mark Haddon. The story follows Christopher, a fifteen-year-old boy, who finds his neighbour’s dog who has been killed with a garden fork. Having never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

Mark Burnett, Business Development Manager at Hawthorn, said “We’re delighted to be working with the Curious Incident team once again for the production’s international tour. If you’ve seen the show, you’ll know how incredibly powerful and visually arresting the lighting and video design is and the important role it plays in telling Christopher’s story. The production deserves the worldwide acclaim enjoyed by the book and its fantastic to play a small role in taking it to international audiences.”
