Theatre of Marcellus

When Julius Caesar Augustus built the original Theatre of Marcellus at Emperors Palace, it was the largest and most important theatre in Ancient Rome. As an open-air theatre 13BCE, it provided an arena for locals and visitors to watch breathtaking performances of drama and song. Johannesburg’s modern-day version is no less impressive, accommodating a thousand theatregoers in a 17-tier auditorium.

The theatre recently completed a R6m transformation, including an audio system centred on a DiGiCo SD9 mixing console. ‘This is an exciting upgrade,’ admits DWR’s Jaco Beukes. ‘It gives the theatre 48 mic/line inputs, 16 line outputs and eight AES outputs on stage.

The Sound of Steel

Brooklyn Steel is a new live music venue in East Williamsburg, New York. What was a steel fabrication business is now a 20,000-sq-ft space equipped with L-Acoustics K2 line arrays, plus delays and stage monitors. A gantry crane retained from the former steel fabrication business enables the flown arrays to be repositioned, along with the movable 50,000-pound steel and concrete stage, to scale the audience area according to the expected attendance at each show.

National concert promoter The Bowery Presents (TBP) is behind the venture, with its in-house team designing and installing the loudspeaker system, which is patterned after a similar rig at Terminal 5, a 3,000-capacity venue in Manhattan that the promoter also exclusively operates.
