Massive Attack / 2016 Tour

UVA's ninth collaboration with Massive Attack builds on their previous work with the band, featuring a new set design for their summer 2016 European tour.

The studio supported UVA in designing a 12m x 4.8m semi-transparent LED backdrop featuring an offset ‘search bar’ of opaque LED panels coming forward of the main screen, allowing for a series of new looks we delivered for the show. Using the central search bar, emulating the search bar of an internet browser, allowed for text searches and prompts to overlay visual content leading the audience through the show narrative.

In conjunction with lighting design by Paul Normandale, the text was used only to present and subvert information, while images and film introduced political themes allowing the audience to join the dots between the concepts in the show narrative.
