South Africa - A recent technical upgrade at Joburg Theatre includes four Robert Juliat Cyrano 2500W HMI followspots which have been installed for use in the 1000+ seat Mandela Theatre.
The complex’s largest auditorium, The Nelson Mandela Theatre, regularly sees over 75% of capacity audiences and remains open a minimum of 50 weeks in each year. In the past decade, it has hosted many hit shows, including William Kentridge’s acclaimed interpretation of Mozart’s The Magic Flute, the West End and Broadway musicals West Side Story, Chicago, The Color Purple and Spamalot and top-of-the-line global touring shows, such as Le Grand Cirque, Lord of the Dance and Brazouka.
Joburg Theatre is also the permanent home to Joburg Ballet, Jill Girard and Keith Smith’s Peoples Theatre Company, and one of the country’s most respected community development projects in the arts, the tiny ‘black-box’ theatre known as space.com. Its varied and loaded schedule also includes Joburg Theatre’s season of annual pantomime productions.
“The Mandela Theatre’s followspots, which have probably stood the test of time for around 30 years, have been replaced by four Robert Juliat Cyranos,” says Kevin Stannett from DWR.
“We are very happy for Enos Ramoroko and his team, who have always been amazing to work with. I think Johan Tshiwo who handles all maintenance at the theatre, will be pleased to have fewer repairs on his hands.”
The recommendation and installation came from DWR Distribution. The Joburg Theatre team were very happy with the service they received. “I’d like to thank the DWR family for their support,” says Enos.
