TSL supplies rig for “Magic Mike Live” Australia

TSL supplies rig for “Magic Mike Live” Australia

Channing Tatum’s dance show “Magic Mike Live” opened in Sydney, Australia, on 17 December, 2020. It features a dynamic all-new lighting design created by Philip Gladwell, using a rig supplied by TSL Lighting.


In contrast to its runs in London, Las Vegas and Berlin, the Australian production takes place in a specially designed Spiegeltent, named The Arcadia. For the Sydney dates, the ‘circus-like’ Arcadia has been constructed in the city’s Entertainment Quarter in Moore Park.


Gladwell, who has designed all versions of “Magic Mike Live” around the world, worked with TSL Lighting to specify the sizeable lighting rig. The team is using a number of products for the first time on the Australian version of the show, including High End SolaFrame and Coemar LEDko fixtures.


Elsewhere in the rig, the team is using Robe Spiiders, which form a ceiling piece over centre of the room/main stage. This rig can ‘slice’ in half to allow scenic items to fly in and out and is pixel mapped. The other main fixtures include Robe MegaPointes, which cut through the rest of the rig for effects, GLP X4 Bar 10s, and Martin Rush Par units.


The dancers are tracked using a BlackTrax system for followspots and the show is controlled via an ETC Eos Ti, with Programmer Liam Jones at the helm. The show is predominantly run on timecode, to cope with the large number of complex cues. “Magic Mike Live” Australia is scheduled for a six-month run in Sydney, before moving to Melbourne in June 2021.
