A tip of the hat for Dalis

A tip of the hat for Dalis

Published: MEA

SOUTH AFRICA: DWR Distribution recently supplied six Robert Juliat Dalis 300W LED cyclights for use on the musical Sophiatown at Johannesburg’s Market Theatre and Pretoria’s State Theatre. The shows marked the first exposure to the Dalis lights for lighting designer, Denis Hutchinson.

Due to the stage being raised for the play, the cyclights were able to be deployed as footlights. ‘I ended up using three units for footlights, which saved my bacon, as Sophiatown is set in is a period where people often wore hats,’ recalled Mr Hutchinson. ‘Although people didn’t necessarily wear them indoors, the director wanted the cast to wear the hats all the way through and you end up struggling to see their eyes. Having a set of footlights solves a whole bunch of problems.’

Seemingly impressed with Dalis, Mr Hutchinson added, ‘I’m looking forward to using them again; Duncan Riley of DWR promised them to me for Saturday Night Fever which runs in September, and I’m going to use them to light the backdrop which is what they are actually designed for.’
