Ahead Of The Curve - Midlands Theatre Upgrades To DiGiCo With Autograph
Autograph Sales & Installations have recently delivered a new DiGiCo SD10T digital mixing system to Curve in Leicester. We are grateful to them for the following description of themselves and their objectives, supplied by Curve's Claire Ward:
'Curve is a major producing theatre, creating exceptional and compelling experiences. We use our unique home and talent to entertain, inspire and engage with a diverse audience and play a leading role in the development of our industry, our city and our global community. At the heart of this is the ambition to offer our local audiences world-class theatrical experiences. Curve is a registered charity, number 230708, enabling people of all ages and backgrounds to access, participate in and learn from the arts, nurturing new and emerging talent, and creating outstanding, award-winning theatrical experiences.'
'Under the leadership of Chief Executive Chris Stafford and Artistic Director Nikolai Foster, Curve is developing a reputation for producing, programming and touring a bold and diverse programme of musicals, plays, new work and dance. All of this presented alongside a dynamic mix of community engagement and learning opportunities, which firmly places audiences and communities at the heart of what Curve does.'
The new equipment package includes a DiGiCo SD10T console (running on the new Stealth Core 2 processing engine) and fitted with the theatre industry-standard 'T'-series software, plus two SD-Racks, an SD-Mini Rack and an SD-RE dual-redundant engine, all connected via OpticalCON fibre. Delivery has taken place just ahead of technical preparations for their Christmas 2016 production of the musical 'Grease'.
