batwin + robin was brought in to create immersive visuals for the live, global-streamed concert, featuring an all-star lineup of musicians including Patti LaBelle, Colbie Caillat, Anthony Hamilton, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Mickey Hart, Michael Fitzpatrick and others, with a score by the Earth’s Symphony Orchestra, led by Grammy-winning conductor Cheche Alara.

Working with producer RWS Entertainment Group and director John Charron, with lighting design by Brian Monahan, batwin + robin has designed and produced video for a new show, Humanity, which premiered in December of 2018 on Holland America Line’s newest Pinnacle class ship, ms Nieuw Statendam. Humanity is an incredible, interactive dance / video show that uses the unique canvas of the World Stage theater to immerse audiences in 270 degrees of animated, panoramic visuals - all closely synchronized to the Step One Dance Company's onstage choreography.

The World Stage features a two story tall, 250 ft. long LED wall, nearly 16,000 pixels wide, with the added element of video projection mapped to the theater stage. b + r used this ground-breaking technology to create moment after moment of seamless interaction between dance and projected video elements.

Following the opening of Humanity on Nieuw Statendam, b + r worked to create a new, traditional proscenium theater version of the show, utilizing traveling LED panels and a flying LED header, that later premiered on several Signature and Vista class Holland America Line ships.

¡Havana! on Norwegian Cruise Line

In the spring of 2018, Norwegian Cruise Line debuted ¡HAVANA!, a mesmerizing new show produced for the inaugural voyage of the Norwegian Bliss. Conceived, directed and choreographed by Tony Award® winning Broadway veteran Warren Carlyle, ¡HAVANA! propels its audience into a fantastic reimagining of 1950s Cuba.

Partnering together as the scenic and costume designer for the production, artist Ruben Toledo and fashion designer Isabel Toledo construct a vivid dreamscape that celebrates and pays homage to a Havana of a different era. batwin + robin worked closely with the team to bring Ruben’s iconic artwork to life across three LED video surfaces. The video content provides scenic backdrops for each scene, while also acting as animated accompaniment to the show’s musical numbers.

This collaborative effort has resulted in a colorful, immersive theatrical experience.

BHS - At Water's Edge

After years of careful planning, the 2,400 square foot multimedia exhibition Waterfront opened earlier this year at Brooklyn Historical Society’s second location in DUMBO, an integral part of the renovated Empire Stores warehouses. For the three-year long exhibition, batwin + robin worked closely with exhibit designers Pure + Applied and BHS Director of Public History Julie Golia on an animated history of the Brooklyn waterfront.

"At Water’s Edge" takes visitors through Brooklyn’s waterfront from the recession of the Wisconsin glacier to the present day, using archival images, as well as geographic visualizations from landscape ecologist Eric Sanderson. The video highlights the changes in use, cultural meaning, and physical boundary the waterfront has undergone and continues to undergo and allows visitors to see that Brooklyn’s contemporary coastline is just one in a long succession of coastlines, stretching back for thousands of years.

The Edgewater, a luxury hotel on the shore of Lake Mendota in Madison WI, recently re-opened with an array of unique media installations with media designed by b+r. This includes two multi-touch tables and a 90 foot media wall that shows an ever-changing display of past and present - with stories related to iconic Madison sights and the hotel's own vibrant past. Guests are encouraged to upload their photos taken at The Edgewater to a photo website where they become part of the hotel's living history. A touchscreen at the media wall allows guests to select a story or recall their individual uploaded images for display on the wall. Hotel staff can work with corporate, wedding and event sponsors to customize a photographic story for the media wall during and after their events.

A more than $1 million interactive media wall at The Edgewater Hotel tells the story of Madison. Robert Dunn, owner of the 202-room hotel, explains how the gallery came to be.
