Project description

At the Jewish theatre in Stockholm, Visual act has been involved in the highly acclaimed production ‘The Dogs of Prague’.

For this show Visual act were commissioned to provide a moving platform on which the audience of 50 people would sit. The front and rear of the platform have independent motorized winch control enabling the platform to be tilted twenty degrees forwards or backwards.

This system has the added advantage of being able to tip the entire audience onto the stage at the end of each performance.

The winches that were used from Demag are normally used in large cranes to move containers for the shipping industry and the Fuji Frenic Lift driver is used worldwide in elevators, so the risks were minimized,
