Clay Paky With Days of Light & Sound
27 April 2001
Clay Paky, via its Argentinian distributor PSL S.A., was the exclusive sponsor of the 'Jornadas de Luz e Sonido' (Days of Light and Sound) event, which took place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from the 2 - 4 April. Organised by the Argentine specialist magazine Tecnopolitan, the event was attended by more than 1000 show lighting professionals. A highlight of the event was a seminar held by Luc La Fortune, the renowned Cirque du Soleil lighting designer. La Fortune spoke of his artistic experiences, particularly on how a designer's creativity is born and develops, and how he finds his own inspiration for the lighting of the world-famous Cirque du Soleil shows. A long-time user and supporter of Clay Paky products, La Fortune said: "Clay Paky projectors have always given me the possibility of implementing all my projects in the best way, thanks to their power, versatility, colour qualities and uniformity of beam. This is why I have often agreed to take part in initiatives organised by Clay Paky, such as the tutorials in previous editions of LDI."
Other well-known lighting designers took part in the event, including Eli Sirlin, Ernesto Diz, Marcelo Cuervo and Ariel Del Mastro. Ariel Del Mastro remains a central figure in Argentina's lighting industry: he is the technical manager for the majority of musical shows internationally produced by Argentina's two most important domestic production companies. Among the most recent installations in the theatre sector are over 60 Stage Line projectors used in the Saturday Night Fever and for The Little Shop of Horrors - for which Clay Paky is the exclusive lighting supplier - both currently on stage in Buenos Aires. Del Mastro can also count numerous artistic experiences outside his own country, including an important contribution to the production of Beauty and the Beast in Madrid, using Clay Paky moving body projectors.
