Robe supports Central Americana & Caribbean Games
Nearly 200 Robe moving lights graced the lighting scheme devised for the Opening Ceremony of the 2018 Central Americana & Caribbean Games, staged in the Estadio Metropolitano Roberto Meléndez, in the Colombian port city of Barranquilla.
LD John J Orduña Sarmiento was part of the team involved in the show’s technical production, for which lighting equipment - including all the Robe fixtures - was supplied by Colombian rental company Línea Estratégica, based in Medellin.
The OC included projection mapping onto the field-of-play with the images also appearing on a large video wall at the back of a large stage built at one end of the stadium. Orduña Sarmiento specified 40 x Robe MegaPointes, 80 x Spiiders and 56 x BMFL WashBeams, and these became the core element of his show. All 40 MegaPointes and 38 of the Spiiders were deployed on the stage.
Forty-two Spiiders were positioned all around the soccer pitch and used for low level washes and to pick out the cast/dancers, joined by 24 x BMFL WashBeams as this was an ideal position for providing precisely shuttered lighting on the performers whilst keeping light off the pitch. The other 36 x BMFL WashBeams were rigged around the stadium roof.
Orduña Sarmiento worked alongside his lighting assistant Edwin Estepa on the Games Ceremonies. The OC’s technical director was Fernando Albanes and the stage director was Miguel Carrilo Foro, both from Mexico. They together with production director Victor Ariza and video director Maurico ‘Tito’ Caicedo, both from Colombia, are all part of technical show production specialists Team Performa SAS.
Rental company Línea Estratégica purchased 36 x BMFL WashBeams and 48 x MegaPointes especially for this event, following up an initial Robe investment which started in 2016 with 84 x Spiiders.
