Clay Paky Lights Up Bal En Blanc 2016

An array of Clay Paky fixtures recently featured at Montreal’s 22nd Bal en Blanc, the oldest electronic music festival in Canada.

Held on Easter weekend at the Palais du congress de Montreal, the Bal en Blanc was produced by Produkt with One Drop as its official cause partner.

One Drop is a Montreal-based non-profit, created by Guy Laliberte, whose mission is to provide safe water to communities worldwide. 45DEGREES staged its One Drop Moment to showcase this collaboration and provide a taste of what’s to come as the partnership continues with Bal en Blanc 2017.

“The challenge was to create a unique Cirque moment during a big EDM show with a live VJ and video artist keying,” said 4U2C’s Karl Gaudreau, who served as LD for the attraction. “We made a special design with six Clay Paky Scenius spots and eight Mythos units on a 16 by 16ft riser in the middle of the space. The dance floor was covered with 90 Sharpys.”

45DEGREES’ Frank Helpin directed One Drop Moment. Barry Russell was the video director and Remi Dubois the VJ.
