Now you see it, now you don’t! Rigging EK live in a dance show.
News just in from one of our Electro Kabuki users in the US. Our friends at Cedar Point, a top amusement park in Ohio (and known as the roller coaster capital of the world) sent us a cool video showing how they use an EK drop in the middle of a live pyrotechnic and laser-filled music and dance performance. And it all takes place outdoors! That’s no problem for the EK system – it’s fully weatherproof.
What’s unusual about this EK implementation is that the crew rigs the drape on the stage floor, just behind the main live action, almost as part of the show. Then they hoist it aloft and project onto it, before finishing with a perfectly timed drop. It’s a great stage effect. And it’s perfect proof of just how easy is it to rig Electro Kabuki – this staging crew can do it live, in real time.
Run the video clip above on the EK YouTube Channel. It was shot during the final Cedar Point dress rehearsal.
Or watch the whole rehearsal clip here – https://youtu.be/L9nzzp9KS7E. The EK rigging starts around the 15-minute mark.
Our sincere thanks to Charles Bradshaw at Cedar Point for thinking to send this to us. It looks like a great show! https://www.cedarpoint.com
