HSL supplied lighting design, equipment and crew for 4 live stages at the 2011 Move It exhibition in Olympia, London – the UK’s largest live dancing experience – working for Upperstreet Events – who organised and co-ordinated the exhibition.
The stages – Main, Freestyle, Arena & Flawless – were dotted all around Olympia, and a production lighting design for all of them was created by HSL’s project manager Dave Singleton. Singleton has designed this show before but this was his first time working for HSL who have been lighting equipment suppliers for the last 2 years.
One of the challenges they had to content with was the high daylight factor due to the venue’s arched glass roof, and the other was the very tight get in/rigging time.
For the load in HSL supplied 16 lighting techs, crew chief Simon “Piggy” Lynch and rigger Ian Stevens, plus 4 students from technical courses at the Brit School of Performing Arts who were on work experience. For the out they were joined by 14 local crew and rigger Steve Belfield.
Main stage was a 13.5 diameter circular construction, with a catwalk emanating from backstage area.
HSL installed a 20 metre square mother grid in the roof, below More >
