E-mail Print PDF

Childish Gambino London show lit with Philips Vari-Lite fixturesLONDON - US rapper Childish Gambino's recent London show used 18 VL3000 Wash luminaires and 16 VL2000 spots. "Childish Gambino's show is very theatrical, not a typical rap concert," explains LD Sarah Landau. "The visual design is focused on projections - four 20K projectors mapped onto an upstage screen, a downstage scrim, side columns, and stage set pieces. The Vari-Lite luminaires illuminated the artists without obstructing or washing out any of the projections, as well as matched their colours and textures to create a cohesive environment onstage."
