Philips Selecon delivers ultimate flexibility to dance-theatre piece
20 November 2014
Australian dance-theatre piece Intimacy by Michelle Ryan and Torque Show recently traversed the globe to take up residence at the Southbank Centre in London. Part of the 'Unlimited' disability arts festival, the piece was lit with eight Philips Selecon LED PLProfile1 luminaires, chosen for their crucial colourising flexibility by lighting designer John Ford. "I chose the PLProfile1 luminaires as I knew I needed something flexible to get as many lighting options as possible into a small space, and a conventional rig can be limiting in that sense," says Ford.

"The SPX Zoomspot luminaire's crisp white beam is one of its best features. It ensures high definition projection without pink hues, which can be easily detected by HD cameras.
