SIB International, the International Exhibition of Equipment and Technology for Discotheques, Dancehalls, Rental Firms and Theatres, being held in Rimini, Italy from March 24 to 27, confirms its role not only as a world leading international trade showcase, but also as the place to meet the industries most accredited and best-know professionals.
Luc La Fortune and Pepi Morgia will in fact be the speakers at a meeting to be held at 3pm on Monday, March 25, entitled "The Light Challenge".
A unique opportunity to see together two of the most skilled “creators” of extraordinary show lighting who will compare their experiences and reveal their professional philosophy and some of their secrets to trade members and visitors at SIB International.
Luc La Fortune is know and internationally acclaimed for his work with Cirque Du Soleil. The French-speaking technical and creative expert is in fact the mind behind all the lighting effects behind the breathtaking acrobatics on the evocative fascinating shows which the Canadian company has been staging round the world with great success for over fifteen years.
Genoa-born lighting designer and set designer Pepi Morgia is responsible for set and lighting effects on tours by the most important Italian and foreign artists (including Elton John, Genesis, Roxy Music, Laura Pausini, Zucchero, Ornella Vanoni, Adriano Celentano, Eros Ramazzotti, Claudio Baglioni, Andrea Bocelli and Biagio Antonacci) and also works regularly in the theatre and on classical, operatic and television productions, as well as artistic and architectural projects.
An event certain to be of great interest to SIB International’s trade member visitors and specialist public, who will thus have the opportunity of discovering how the suggestive visual magic is created for concerts and shows applauded by tens of thousands of spectators in every corner of the world.
