After Dark, 2023
Our team transformed the Las Vegas Circus Center into a full-gym immersive circus experience. Audience members flooded in after sunset to be sheparded to different stations with straps, umbrellas, silks, and even a flying piano. One aerial winch had a full rig, but every other area needed a bespoke, low-budget, versatile lighting set up. I chose small LED instruments to blend in to an up close audience in the round without requiring a generator. I relied heavily on practicals, footlighting, and hiding lights within gym equipment, requiring me to load in and out every night. Highlights included a glowing tunnel made of cyr wheels, a color changing cave under a trapeze net featuring a secret concert, and a truss "forest" where our pole and handstand artists performed. This immersive production required some creative problem solving and quick learning on new equipment and gerry-rigged effects.
