Ground Control for Red Bull Dance your Style
India – Red Bull Dance your Style is a global digital event where the best dancers from around the world showcase their skills in one-on-one battles to unpredictable tunes. Last year, no less than 80 events took place, including one in India where 26 Showtec Sunstrip Active MKII blinders were used. The event was live on Insider and reached dance fans around the world. It was a unique dance experience where the crowd decided who ran the dance floor.
The dancers’ talents were showcased to the world in style through professional lighting and visual production around the dance floor. Production was handled by Nodwin Gaming. Naveen Deshpande of Ground Control organized the lighting design with support from lighting inventory provider Star Dimensions India Pvt. ltd. He has already successfully used the Showtec Sunstrip Active MKII blinders during performances by great touring musicians such as Prateek Kuhad. He discovered that 26 of these blinders would make a worthy contribution to Red Bull Dance your Style.
Showtec Sunstrip Active MKII blinders were placed behind the DJ booth. They were positioned horizontally and formed a wall of bright, warm white light. Each pixel is individually controllable via DMX and the light output is seamlessly adjustable with the integrated 0-100% dimming function. The lights can therefore be used to provide different effects, from a slight flicker of light to a full blinding effect.
