Dalhalla, the 4000 capacity open air theatre and located 7 kilometres north of Lake Siljan and the town of Rättvik in central Sweden, presented a summer season of around 30 performances.
This year‘s festival production lighting design by Anders ‘Hebbe’ Herbertzon, from High Voltage Designs, included Robe MMXs and LEDWash 600s, recently purchased by locally based lighting rental company Park Brothers, and delivered by Robe’s Swedish distributor, Bellalite.
The Dalhalla design was based on two 17.6 metre long trusses hung under the industrial roof structure. Other lights are rigged from four catwalks which are part of the roof structure designed by Jesper Källquist of Park Brothers. On the front catwalk are eight LEDWash 600s and the back and mid trusses have six MMX Spots, six ColorWash 1200E ATs and another eight Robe ColorWash 1200E ATs on the floor.
In addition, the LEDWash 600s are used for washing the full stage and general front lighting focused down onto the forestage. They have been used on numerous shows since arriving at Park Brothers’ busy warehouse.
Herbertzon stated, "the MMXs and the ColorWashes match each other very well in terms of colours – always a bonus when mixing and matching the different fixtures on a show. A key for lighting the Dalhalla shows is offering enough variety and adaptability."
