PWL choose Robe Tetra2s for K3 tour
The most popular girl band in Benelux – K3 – are back on the road, complete with a tightly choreographed show produced by Studio 100, with lighting designed by Jeroen Opsteyn from creative practice Painting with Light (PWL). Wanting to keep the focus firmly in the three girls, a more minimalist ‘bare stage’ production concept was developed without video but with a big emphasis on lighting to provide the visual atmospherics including a kinetic essence that flowed throughout the performance with the dance movements. This was delivered thoughtfully and with great impact by Jeroen with a carefully chosen rig that includes 40 x Robe Tetra2 moving LED batten fixtures that play a key role in the lighting design, which, together with a series of smartly designed props and costumes and the tight choreography, help bring the stage alive with colour and energy. The Tetra2s are arranged in four vertical ‘perspective’ linear rows above the stage and provide a virtual ceiling and a host of architectural looks. Also on the rig are a lot of zoned LED strobes used more unusually but highly eﬀectively as kinetic eﬀects and wash lighting, all programmed into a grandMA2 console by Jeroen and Niels Huybrechts his colleague from Painting with Light, which is creatively directed by Luc Peumans.
