Splitbeam takes Madame Zingara to new heights

Published: MEA

SOUTH AFRICA: Making its way to Cape Town’s Grand Parade, a performance by Madame Zingara’s travelling theatrical experience was supplied with audio and lighting equipment by Gearhouse company, Splitbeam. Madame Zingara’s Richard Griffin brought Splitbeam and lighting designer Mannie Manim together with the goal of taking the show to new levels.

Splitbeam supplied a compact PA system comprising 12 Meyer Sound M1D loudspeakers along with UPMs, UPJs and UP Junior cabinets to provide the necessary coverage. A combination of Sennheiser radio mics, DPA d:fine 66 headset mics and a Pioneer Nexus DJ system were also deployed with control provided from a Midas Pro 1 console.

The stage’s in-the-round design presented the challenge of lighting it without blinding either the audience or performers. The fixtures were rigged as high as possible and the use of profile fixtures with variable beam size, such as the VL 2500 spots and the Robe Pointes, reportedly overcame this challenge ‘in a clever design supported by VL2500 wash and Robe 600’. Martin MH4 beam lights and Rush LED Zoom pars were requested as under stage uplighters. The lighting was programmed on an MA2 Lite by Glen Duncan and JP Willson.

‘The process involved many different elements coming together at the same time with a certain degree of fluidity,’ explained Helen Surgeson, Splitbeam’s key account manager. ‘We needed mutual co-operation and a “big picture” approach to the delivery. We have worked closely with the Madame Zingara team and our Cape Town-based lighting distributor to bring everything together. It has been a magical journey and the results are simply breathtaking.’
