Dîner en Blanc is a worldwide event spanning six continents in which people have a meal dressed in all white in a public space. Only a select, exclusive number of guests who have previously signed up are made privy to the location on the day of the dinner and converge in an iconic urban location.
Visual Focus was chosen to supply all production requirements for Toowoomba’s first Diner en Blanc event. The brief for all Diner en Blanc events is all white, all the time “Which poses particular challenges when trying to put together an interesting lighting show.” noted Simon Janetzki the Lighting Operator for the event. The solution for this was to use a wide variety of fixtures and light sources to offer a variety of colour temperatures all in the ‘white’ spectrum. Combining Low colour temperature (orange) incandescent bulbs and LED’s with Ultra Violet and blue hues gave a large variety of looks to keep the nearly 800 guests up and dancing all night long.
Audio to cover the large audience area (an entire football field) was also supplied by Visual Focus. An Acoustic Technologies CLA700 Line array was chosen to provide reinforcement for the dancefloor area. With a short setup time and limited power available at the secret site, the CLA proved to be an ideal choice for this unique event.
🥂 WHO IS COMING IN 2019 🥂On Saturday October 20th, the Garden City came alive in a sea of white as guests were transported from their departure points across the CBD to the inaugural Dîner en Blanc – Toowoomba's secret location. The sun was shining and the weather perfection when over 650 guests arrived to Toowoomba Grammar School's vibrantly green ovals where they enjoyed great food, friendship and an abundance of champagne. As the sun set, the captivating sparkler moment marked the opening of what would be an electric dance floor. An event like no other and one Toowoomba will never forget! ✨ Would we see you there in 2019? Comment below if you would love to experience the magic again right here in Toowoomba!
