The producer and director Futais Mohammed Bugnah directed a new show in the
Ta’if Tent Theatre for the Souq Okaze Cultural Festival, in the presence of his
Highness Prince Mishaal bin Majid Al Saud, Governor of Jeddah.
The Italian lighting designer Emiliano Morgia was involved in designing the lighting
for the Riyadh-based Saudi production company Rhythm Media Production. Together
with Giochi di Luce Dubai, they set up a fifty-plus-yard-wide stage and a video
control room to project original spectacular twelve-yard-high scenic settings.
Owing to the limited space, high performance lightweight lights far from the stage
had to be installed or deployed on supplementary structures to illuminate the scene
properly. 24 Clay Paky Alpha 1500 Profiles were included in the lighting design for
brightness, precision and framing system. They were fitted along a linear fifty-plus-
yard truss to illuminate the stage and actors. 24 Alpha Spot HPE 700s proved crucial
to create vibrant atmospheres and gobo nuances on the set.
A battery of 24 compact Sharpys provided all the backlighting needed.
The show was pre-programmed by the lighting designer using WYSIWYG Wysisuite.
