Having collaborated with Jeff Wayne and Bill Kenwright on the Dominion Theatre run of The War of the Worlds,

STUFISH are delighted to join once again to work on this reinvented 40th Anniversary version of the arena show.

We wanted to find new ways to immerse the audience in the spectacular music and video imagery from the show. The show has been reworked to add additional projection elements that bring the projections into the room and allow the full audience to feel closer to the filmic and live performer action.

We created an updated design for the orchestra stands on the main stage with an additional thrust in the centre for performers to get close to the front audience.

The iconic ‘Brave New World’ scene has been redesigned to bring the scene right into the heart of the audience. With a kinetic bridge that descends over the audience to connect to an additional satellite stage,

the artillery man can now travel into the arena in a more intimate way. Other upgrades to the video content include the 3D hologram projections of Liam Neeson.
