PLSN Staff • Projection Connection News • September 7, 2013

More details from Tait (www.taittowers.com):

Bruno Mars’ Moonshine Jungle tour required an adaptable performance environment that could convey a variety of visual undertones. Working under the direction of Designers, Leroy Bennett and Corey Fitzgerald, and alongside Production Manager, Joel Forman, TAIT was able to create just that. The complete staging solution features an array of custom elements, including a flying video wall, scenic chevron wall, geometric ceiling panels and a one-of-a-kind mirror ball. TAIT Project Manager, Brian Levine, said, “We were able to offer a fully- customized solution with optimized stock components; maximizing value for the client.”

A flying video wall, powered by TAIT’s Navigator Control System and hung from 9 variable speed chain motors, creates a unique, digital display. The video wall flies in and out of view, incorporating the show’s vast video content, as needed.

Another key aspect of the set’s interchangeable design is a 3-piece automated, chevron wall. Made up of 135 formed plastic Kydex shapes, the scenic wall creates a refined, neo-retro vibe. TAIT engineered the element to be light enough to hang from a standard Austrian system.

Adding to the cohesiveness and depth of the design, cubic shaped ceiling panels mimic the stage surface and offset the show’s lighting rig.

The interior-lit element is made up of a configuration of both mirrored tiles and empty slates that allow beams of light to blast through.

TAIT also provided two integrated mainstage lifts and a Kabuki system.
