Prolight + Sound 2023: “Sinus – Systems Integration Award” for the “Dark Matter” AV installation in Berlin
A parallel world of light, space and sound: this is how lighting artist Christopher Bauder describes the multimedia experience “Dark Matter”, created by him and the WHITEvoid design studio, which will receive the “Sinus – Systems Integration Award” in 2023. In the pitch-black rooms of a former factory, visitors embark on a journey through seven immersive worlds brought to life with elaborate light installations, kinetic elements, projection mapping and 3D sound. The award ceremony will take place on 27 April 2023 at Prolight + Sound, the leading trade fair for the event and entertainment technology industry.
Prolight + Sound 2023: Opus Award for innovative “Pandaemonium” stage at Staatstheater Kassel
This year’s “Opus – German Stage Award” honours the “Pandaemonium”, a completely new kind of box theatre concept that realised a wide variety of scenic areas and sightlines and brought the audience close to the action. The sophisticated construction and safe distances between the seats made it possible to realise large opera productions such as “Wozzeck” or “Tosca” with a large orchestra and choir in front of the audience at the Staatstheater Kassel, even in times of pandemic challenges. The Opus will be presented on 27 April 2023 at Prolight + Sound, the leading international trade fair for the event and entertainment technology industry.
