Wireless Solution Sweden AB was a sponsor for the recent Scenofest event in Prague. Scenofest is the educational project of OISTAT (International Organization of Scenographers, Theatre Architects and Technicians) and the Prague Quadrennial.
Scenofest, which was held during the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space, the world's largest scenography event, included workshops in a wide variety of artistic disciplines; more than 70 artists and professional leaders from all over the world; and more than 1500 participants ‐ both students and professionals from across the globe.
Visitors to the Prague Quadrennial had the opportunity to enjoy the performances entitled Six Acts transforming locations around the beautiful city of Prague into spaces for site-specific performances and installations realized by students under the leaderships of Pavel Štourač, Roma Patel, Louise Ann Wilson, Rolf Abderhalden, Tomáš Žižka and Fiona Watt. The Six Acts were united by being strongly driven by sound and light.
W-DMX was used in the First Act, the artistic vision of Pavel Štourač and the team of students he worked with. Participants of the first act invited visitors to move from the bustle of the city to discover ancient stories and forgotten lives. The performance showed the garden stories through the collaboration of light, sound and the body movement in beautiful paper costumes.
Shane Kelly, Head of Theatre Technology of The Theatre School at DePaul University used W-DMX transmitters and receivers, donated by Wireless Solution, to realize Štourač's vision. The event was held in the large the Francsiscan Garden that used 7 different parts of the garden. There was power at each location, but they did not want to run DMX cable across the garden. There was one central location for the lighting console.
Louis Janssen, President of OISTAT thanked Wireless Solution for their participation:
On behalf of OISTAT, we would like to express our gratitude for your great support to Scenofest. The event cannot come to a great success without your sponsorship. OISTAT values greatly your contribution and we would like to take this chance to thank you again for supporting theatre arts. We look forward to cooperating with you on the future OISTAT activities.
