Claypaky Scenius Unico and Mythos 2 light up Pink’s Beautiful Trauma World Tour

Pink continues her Beautiful Trauma World Tour with Claypaky Scenius Unico and Mythos 2 fixtures shining a light on the American singer’s extraordinary talents. ACT Lighting, Inc. is the exclusive distributor of Claypaky lighting in North America. “As with all Pink shows the lighting design needs to be versatile,” says Baz Halpin of Burbank’s silentHOUSE who is the Lighting Designer/ Production Designer and Director of the show. Halpin obtained 93 Scenius Unicos and 118 Mythos 2 for the tour from SOLOTECH. “Since late 2017 we have been enamored with the Scenious range,” he explains. “The Unico, as a well rounded multi-purpose fixture, I believe it is unmatched. As a key light, a long-distance fixture and a powerful beam based aerial fixture, the Unico in particular delivers at the highest level on all the demands I have place on it. The Mythos 2 is another fixture that we rely heavily on. As a universal small but powerful beam fixture it slots nicely into that category.”

Halpin has mounted the Mythos 2 on automated trusses and pods over the stage. “These are primarily used as aerial beam fixtures for musical dynamics and creating graphic ‘pictures’,” he says. “The Unicos are used for the majority of other needs: key and side lighting of performers, lighting and modeling of scenery and lighting of the aerial performers. The key factors that the Claypaky fixtures afford us are brightness, reliability, versatility and quality.” Associate Lighting Designer Eric Marchwinski adds, “the tool set of the Unico provides exactly what we need for our application without over complicating the feature set. The simplicity of the fixture design helps streamline the programming, and the versatility allows for a more unified look no matter the placement in the rig. The Scenius line has the fastest optical train – zoom, iris, shutters – we have ever seen in a profile or spot unit.
