LED Creative add a touch of sparkle to Strictly It Takes Two
With the latest season of Prime Time BBC show Strictly Come Dancing well underway, illumination specialists LED Creative have been adding their own sparkle to sister show, It Takes Two.
To perfectly complement the glitzy flavour of It Takes Two, Lighting Director Gurdip Mahal and Scenic Designer Joshua Grace have created a true neon nightclub look, using concentrated violets and blues plus plenty of silver, mirrored sparkle to reflect the show’s ballroom dancing heritage.
For additional effect, LED Creative SIGMA 30 wands have been vertically suspended around the stage perimeter. Perfectly placed to allow subtle movements in shape and colour without overpowering the shows content, the 1 metre LED wands allow accurate control of the speed and flow of the LED chase over an almost infinite number of sequences, either pre-programmed or executed live on set.
Designer Joshua Grace has also employed the LED Creative Alpha 60 RGB system, to create the decorative, proscenium arch-like light boxes that rise above the stage, adding additional intensity to the overall look.
Commenting on the show, LED Creative’s Adam Howard says “It Takes Two has a vibrancy all of its own, and the intense colours employed by Gurdip and Joshua have created a perfect ballroom feel. Plus, the inclusion of our Sigma 30 LED Wands as part of the installation has provided some fantastic nightclub-esque, movement to the background”.
