The Visual act technicians are setting up the stage scenery together with the band and the choreographer.
“The Stage Control System is designed to be flexible. It allows us to design the scenery in any way we like, creating movements never seen before. Then we use Visual act to automate those movements. The show settings will emerge from the moments of rehearsal. Practically the only limit is the stage boundaries. The wagons can be programmed to go pretty much as we want due to speed and movement.” Says, Daniel Boll, head of technicians for the Visual act Stage Control System in Belgium.
The stage is placed in the middle of the Sport Palace and measures 7×50 metres. It is covered with LED screens, for video projection from underneath, protected by a 15mm thick glass cover on top, where the wagons will run under the shows.
Visual act will during stage building phase have four technicians in place and after the opening night will two stay behind to monitor and supervise the Stage Control System in unanimity with the band and the choreographer.
