The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway
Available to buy here
This groundbreaking experiment in total theatre had slide projections, laser projections, costumes and kinetic stage lighting. Merged together this performance translated Peter Gabriel’s complicated musical narrative into a visceral, memorable multimedia experience for all that saw it back in 1974/75.
It is incredible to think that this pioneering show that featured a multimedia slide show, costumes and pyrotechnics was never filmed in its entirety.
After recreated the live stage from 1973, it was time to build the live stage from ‘The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway’ tour.
