Light Initiative and Frankie Boyle worked closely with Rachel Welsh and her team to create twenty-one high-end, high-performance costumes for Britannia cruise ship’s closing show by Micha Bergese Productions. We pushed wireless LED systems to the edge, whilst making no compromise on the extravagant costume designs.

The lighting system was a bespoke Light Initiative wireless design, which gave our imaginations free rein. Some of the costumes required 10 metres of LED, and after months of research and development we created a neon video LED that could both be moulded to extreme shapes and be resilient under extreme conditions.

The costumes delivered multiple lighting sequences in a 30-minute show, each costume delivering performances that were both individual and in sync with the others.
