The SkyPanel is known as a top-quality light source for film and TV productions. But these multi-functional LED surface-area lights from ARRI are also being used ever more frequently in the theatre. A current example of this is the production of "The Lucky Ones" by the theatre collective "ausbau.sechs" in collaboration with Munich's Kammerspiele. It is a performance installation under the artistic direction of Linda Loebel and Sebastian Linz, based on the novel of the same name by Kristine Bilkau (Luchterhand, 2015). It is about a young urban family in fear of social demise when their source of income is threatened. There are no actors involved. Instead, sixteen audience members are led in pairs by headphone through a set made up of eight interconnected square rooms.
SkyPanels light the stage for "The Lucky Ones"
Wolfgang Eibert is responsible for the lighting in the production of "Die Gluecklichen" ("The Lucky Ones") in Munich's Kammerspiele theater. He decided to go with ARRI S30 C SkyPanels – for good reason.
