Entry Descriptionvariable honeycomb design
the decision to almost entirely hide the lighting set was made very consciously, explains the designer: "By accommodating most of the spotlights in the honeycombs, the stage itself looks very minimalist and tidy. But there are always changes and surprises due to the way the honeycombs are moved and as a result of their assembly.”
In general, the show is characterised by spontaneity and the element of surprise: “There is no fixed format. The spontaneity on stage is almost a trademark of the band, and a technical failure can also become part of the show. Being able to act spontaneously and creatively as an operator is, so to speak, my speciality. I have little interest in timecode perfection, and I play the lighting more like an instrument. That's why I enjoy working with the band so much."
