Russia - Moscow’s Vakhtangov Theatre marked its upcoming 100th anniversary with a special 10-minute music and light show featuring more than 100 Claypaky Axcor Profile 900 LN high-wattage moving head LED spotlights and HY B-EYE K25 moving head LED wash.
The theatre’s lighting designers Ruslan Mayorov and Alexander Matveev created the lighting spectacular with Sergei Dobrikov, software engineer from equipment supplier and installer Doka Centre, choreographing the intricate play of beams to music by Faustas Latenas.
An invited audience was in attendance for the show, which featured forests of parallel beams, dancing beams, textured curtains of light and giant beams that broke the boundaries of the proscenium to sweep the audience. The theatre’s heads and the Russian government’s Minister of Culture were on hand to offer congratulations.
“When we were looking for lighting equipment for the Vakhtangov, we looked at many manufacturers, but somewhere deep in my heart, we made a choice of Claypaky fixtures long ago,” say designers Mayorov and Martveey. “We live at a time when lighting equipment loses its relevance in a year, and the challenges for this show were to use LED fixtures with no loss of intensity and colour and little noise backed up by reliability and support.”
They travelled to Claypaky’s plant in Italy with Doka’s Vasily Litvin, where they observed the entire Axcor line as well as the B-EYE and K-EYE products. “The most important thing is that Claypaky listened to our wishes and developed quiet, theatrical versions of the devices especially for our theatre. We are sure that we made the right choice and want to say thanks to Claypaky and Doka.”
