Mavericks Sparkle with Torroja at Chihuahua Desert Museum

Victoria Wasylak • MMR GlobalSupplier Scene • December 13, 2019

A crowd of over 7,000 waited eagerly for Ana Torroja to appear at the esplanade of the Chihuahua Desert Museum of Delicias. As soon as the first notes were struck, the star and her backups were engulfed in a sea of intense back and side light that moved from white to blue, and contributing to the immersive visuals was a collection of 64 CHAUVET Professional fixtures. These were supplied by Chihuahua-based Pro Audio Soluciones S.A. de C.V. A dream-like mood was cast over the stage by the rich mix of overlapping colors created by the rig’s 16 Maverick MK3 Wash fixtures and 24 Rogue R2 Wash units.

The 40 wash fixtures were flown on mid-stage truss in addition to being floor mounted and hung on side-stage truss. From these positions, they bathed the stage in color from every direction, creating a sense of depth and texture that endowed the star’s performance with extra passion and energy.

Adding excitement to the lightshow were 24 Maverick MK1 Hybrids. Positioned on the stage deck, some of these 440W fixtures were used to provide aerial effects. Other units, which were flown on truss, engaged the crowd with audience lighting.
