The Netherlands - One of best-known event venues in The Netherlands has been recently transformed into an intimate restaurant with high-tech decor. Madame Jeanette is the successor of dinner show Pandora, which ended early this year.
It is an intense evening full of visual spectacle, where visitors dine in the middle of a vibrant story that is told in a visual, musical and culinary way. In recent months, Studio 21 has been completely rebuilt especially for this show, with the kitchen in the centre of the room and a high-tech decor in which the stage, the video and audio are in a 360° setting around the guests.
Dutch lighting, audio, and rigging company Chain was responsible for the technical production. Because of the complete round set up, the decision was made to use six circles in the decor. In the middle of the room a 6mtr FD34 circle was used for the centre video. On the outside, a 270° LED screen was hung on a HD44 circle of 40m. Visuals are presented during the show that sets the scene. In between the smallest and biggest circle four additional HD44 circles of 8, 20, 30 and 36m were added for rigging the lighting fixtures.
Paul Chamalaun of Chain comments: “The entire creative concept is based on an ‘in-the-round’ scenario. This is also the reason that for the spacing and shape of the lighting plan circles were used.
“In practice, you will find a lot in a ceiling like Studio 21's, from air conditioners to suspension points and other steel construction parts. Lennart Lindhout, our rigger, has fully mapped the studio in the preliminary phase to achieve both the total maximum load and clearance.”
The development of the show is in the hands of producers Tribe Company and TWOFIFTYK, both agencies with a lot of experience in devising and producing music events like De Vrienden van Amstel Live and Armin Only.
