Large Elation Lighting Package for Mexico’s “Abrazos”

Renowned performance company Finzi Pasca recently used a large number of Elation Professional luminaires on the interactive show “Abrazos” at the 2019 State Fair of León in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico. More than 100 Elation fixtures took part in the show, giving life to a series of acrobatic, music and contortion acts, making “Abrazos” an unforgettable show for grown-ups and kids alike.

A package of 42 SixBar 1000 IP™, 8 Smarty Hybrid™, 18 Fuze Wash Z350™, 16 Fuze Pair Z120 IP™, 11 Colour 5 Profile™, 8 Paladin™ and 8 DTW Blinder 700 IP™ luminaires was used to light the show, which played from January 11 to February 5. Daniele Finzi Pasca, director of Switzerland-based Compagnia Finzi Pasca and creator of shows such as Corteo and Luzia for Cirque Du Soleil, wrote and directed the beautiful show. Lighting design was by Daniele Finzi Pasca and Alexis Bowles. 

In the center of the arena, a 15-meter square stage was illuminated using 8 Acclaim Flex Tube RGB LED strips and surrounded by 42 Elation SixBar 1000 IP™ battens washing the stage from all angles. Trimmed at a height of twelve meters, fast and compact Smarty Hybrid™ moving heads along with Fuze Wash Z350™ and Fuze Par Z120 IP™ single source par moving head luminaires highlighted the dozen artists who starred in the show.  

Grupo Produce Comunicación was in charge of the production and its 75 performances. The Mexican company owns a great deal of Elation gear and offers production services for corporate and government events, audiovisual productions and video mapping, among other services.
