Robe Tungstens for Gold Coast Arts Centre

Robe Tungstens for Gold Coast Arts Centre


Eight new Robe ColorWash 750AT Tungsten fixtures have been added to The Gold Coast Arts Centre's moving light system.

Arts Centre Technical Manager Chris Dbais, states “We needed some new fixtures, and the Robe Tungsten's were the best choice for excellent reliability and great features”.

Robe's Australian distributor, the ULA Group, provided the Arts Centre with some demo Tungstens, which were utilised on the ‘Whitlams Orchestral Tour'. After this, everyone was happy and so it was a very easy decision to purchase.

Another big advantage was the level of local service offered for the Robe products, on which Dbais says “I'm well impressed with ULA's fantastic technical support ”.

The Tungstens are being rolled out in the coming weeks for the Centre's annual in-house production of smash-hit Broadway musical, “The Boy from Oz”. Lighting director Scott Allan has included the fixtures in his rig, and Dbais comments that he is “excited” to see what the LD comes up with.

The Gold Coast Arts Centre is a multipurpose facility incorporating an Arts Theatre, Art Gallery, Comedy Clubhouse, Boardrooms, Function Facilities, Cafes, Costume Hire and Chapel. The Arts Theatre is an 1174 seat auditorium, with full stage facilities for theatre shows, conventions and product launches, etc. The Centre also hosts a wide variety of touring productions and special events in addition to staging their own productions and performing arts summer schools.
