City Lights & The Black Pirate header image

Funded and featured as part of the Igniting Ambitions and Cultural Olympiad in 2012, The Lost Boys worked with Sinfonia Viva and Derby Quad to create a movie, music and sport inspired mash-up for outdoor theatre performance. We focused on the Silent movie era and utilised the boxing match in Chaplin's City Lights and the incredible derring-do stunts of Douglas Fairbanks in The Black Pirate. We had a multi-platformed rig built in the city centre and choreographed the fights and slapstick sequences with original music from a Sinfonia Viva quartet. This production was then subsequently seen at Feste, Mintfest and the Derby Arena opening.
