A Mystic Project for Martin


The Kingdom of Dreams in India is a beautiful space created as a representation of Indian culture, with atmospheric lighting provided by Martin Professional.


India’s Kingdom of Dreams is a first-of-its-kind entertainment destination near Delhi that presents Indian culture and unique Indian experiences to tourists in the form of Indian-based performing arts, crafts, and cuisine. Martin Professional created the lighting for Kingdom of Dreams, supported through the company’s Indian office based in Bangalore.


The site is situated at the apex of the golden triangle of Jaipur, Agra and Delhi, and is six acres in size. Kingdom of Dreams boasts venues of international standard, namely the Nautanki Mahal and Showshaa theatres, and a cultural and cuisine area known as ‘Culture Gully’; a lavish air-conditioned indoor boulevard full of Indian culinary delights and shopping. Nautanki Mahal’s appearance is designed


to resemble a palace, serving as the park’s main entertainment space. Consulting lighting designer for the project was Jerry Appelt, who also designed the lighting for the theatre’s debut show, “Zangoora – the Gypsy Prince”.


“Nautanki Mahal features the Zangoora show but also hosts other shows and events,” Jerry comments. “It’s really a very multi-purpose space and therefore needed a flexible house rig to cover the various


58


events. It was very important to have a reliable system and I know the MAC series well. They are reliable workhorses and very flexible.” The theatre rig is made up of mostly MAC 2000 series fixtures - Martin MAC 2000 Wash XB™, MAC 2000 Wash™, MAC 2000 Profile™ and MAC 2000 Performance™ luminaires, plus Atomic 3000™ strobe effects. Adding to the mystical atmosphere of “Zangoora” is ground-hugging fog from Jem Glaciator X-Stream™ heavy foggers along with smoke effects from Martin Magnum 2000™ smoke machines. Appelt also completed the lighting design for the exterior of the theatre. For this he chose Martin Exterior 1200™, Exterior 600™ and Inground 200™ luminaires. The Exterior series fixtures are mounted in groups, illuminating the entire façade in a uniform wash of saturated colours that give the structure a stunning evening atmosphere.


Additional Martin lighting at Kingdom of


Dreams includes a line of Martin Tripix 1200™ outdoor LED strip lights mounted on an anterior wall to uplight Indian relief art, and additional Exterior 600s used to add color to the Culture Gully.
