lighting, we used to have 250W of air conditioning. Now, with almost no heat being emitted by the LEDs, we need far less climate control. Which means less energy usage both by the lights and the air cooling, and the performers are also more comfortable– plus, of course, there’s less noise.”


In addition to the pop and theatre spaces, ECI Cultuurfabriek houses a cinema showing arthouse films, pottery and jewellery exhibitions, and hosts educational visits.

Shows usually stop at Dutch theatres for one or two nights before they move on, often travelling to 60 or 80 local theatres across the country and bringing only minimal equipment of their own, relying instead on whatever the theatre already owns. This means a lot of time reprogramming and refocusing. Janssen concludes “With the ETC LED fixtures, using one unit for all the colours needed– instead of one per colour– there’s no need for precious time to be taken up with rigging; instead, technicians can spend


more time working on other aspects of the setup. At the beginning, visiting theatre groups were suspicious of the capabilities of LED. As soon as they see the power and versatility of these fixtures, they never fail to be impressed. I always discuss with them why the seven colour LED system is better than any RGB system, and they always leave with a big smile. The Source Four LED fixtures are just magnificent.”
