Only The Brave

  • Welsh Millennium Centre, Cardiff, 2016

Only The Brave at the WMC is the latest and most fully realised version of the musical based around the second world war mission to capture Pegasus bridge on the eve of D-Day. The minimal set design relied heavily on continuous multi layered projection to create all the locations and the dramatic highlights of the staging. The projection covered 116 sqm of screens from front and rear to create a dynamic and versatile staging.

The skeletal metallic forms of Michael Vale’s utilitarian set are silhouetted against an amorphous backdrop of striking video projections by Dick Straker.
Rosemary Waugh- The Stage
Much of the atmosphere effectively engendered throughout is due to Dick Straker’s clever use of video projection, coupled with Malcolm Rippeth’s brilliant lighting, both of which are used brilliantly in enhancing the tension of the final scenes.
