On September 16th the Survivor Israel final was broadcast live on Reshet's channel 2, using Danor Theatre & Studio Systems lighting equipment. Danor is Compulite's official distributor in Israel. 

 

 

Survivor is a reality television show. The format is produced in many countries throughout the world every year. The show contains competitors who are marooned in a wild and isolated location, where they must provide food, water, fire, and shelter for themselves. The contestants compete against each other for rewards and immunity from elimination. The competitors are progressively eliminated from the game as they are voted out by fellow competitors until only one remains and receives the title of "Survivor".

Inbar Pinievsky Basson was announced winner of Survivor Israel 2017, to the excitement of the large studio audience and viewers at home.

To control the sophisticated lighting equipment, including 270 fixtures for this special event, the lighting team used Compulite's Vector Red, Vector Blue, Spark4D and e-Port 41.

The Crow Only Knows Where The Children Go

 

"Somewhere, when you grow up, you become an adult. You shake off your youth and leave it behind like a snake's skin, and once you leave you'll never get there again. 

But what happens to your childhood? Where does all that youth go? Only the crows know."

 

 

The Crow Only Knows Where The Children Go is a new horror musical by Alexandra Broeder, presented by the Theaterfestival Boulevard  in Hertogenbosch, Netherlands. 

The performance takes place in a secret location and only those who buy tickets receive the address.

 

The enchanting show is performed by a cast of 16 children but is intended for adult audiences only.  It explores the relationship between childhood and adulthood. 

The show follows the childish souls of those who are now grown. They gather in a mystical place called Kinderberg, there the young souls live forever, taking all sorts of shapes; cowboys, clowns, fairies, Indians and crows. 

In the dark forest full of bare trees, they play games, sing songs and share their memories.

 

The lighting for this unique show had to be eerie, in order to give the audience a hair-raising experience. To achieve this complex effect, the lighting crew decided to use Vector Orange to control their many fixtures and beams.

Gardaland is an amusement park located in North-Eastern Italy. During the 2017 summer season piazza Valle dei Re, aka the heart of the park, has transformed into an enormous dance floor every night, offering great music to visitors.

During these spectacular musical nights, Gardaland mainly features performances by local DJs.

"Night is Magic" also featured Los Locos, the internationally known band, who performed in July with some of Latin America's greatest hits, as well as singers and dancers from the Italian channel 5 talent show Amici.

Emi Skilla, the known Italian rapper will be performing there in August and so will many other talented performers.
