Robe T2 Profiles specified for Zodiac the Musical
Zodiac The Musical is a brand‐new musical produced by Peet Nieuwenhuijsen, directed by William Spaaij and staged at the Koepelgevangenis, a former prison in Breda, The Netherlands. Lighting designer Marc Heinz was among a talented team working under the technical production umbrella of Unlimited Productions – also based in Breda – helping to deliver this captivating new work.
He and technical production manager Michiel van der Zijde – representing Unlimited Productions together with Jeﬀrey Kranen and Luc Huisman – also designed the set, and Marc specified 32 of Robe’s recently launched new T2 Profile fixture for the project, together with 50 x Robe Spiider LED wash beams and assorted other lighting fixtures. Marc and his assistant designer Jordy Veenstra, Michiel and the entire production team were
delighted to be back working on a show after a long break due to the pandemic. Robe’s distributor Controllux then pulled out all the stops to ensure that lighting supplier Events Light received the fixtures in time for the get in!
All 92 moving lights – including all the T2 Profiles and Spiiders – are working in conjunction with a Follow Me automated followspot system which is at the heart of the design, and this ensures that all the main characters in this very busy and fast‐paced show always have the right lights trained on them, even when they are rotating on the revolve rings.
All the show’s lighting is being supplied by Events Light, who were among the first in Europe to receive the T2 Profile.
Lighting control is via a Road Hog Full Boar console programmed by Jasper Nijholt. Projectors and media servers were programmed by Ruben Boogaard.
