Flying at the Barbican

Celebrating the Barbican Theatre’s old fly system, our latest behind the scenes documentary, Flying at the Barbican, heads backstage – above stage – to meet some of the personalities that fly our shows.

As we move towards digital systems, we honour the mechanical beauty of the analogue system that has powered our theatre from the very beginning, in those pre-digital days.

In September 2013, the fly system was replaced and the theatre reopened in October with Boy Blue Entertainment’s The Five and the Prophecy of Prana, a brand new show with a brand new fly system.

Senior Technical Manager, Steff Langley shares some photos of the vibrant new fly system.
