FOR more than a month, dB Audio Namibia an audio visual equipment supplier has been designing, brainstorming, experimenting, planning and engineering together with several role players in the live events industry – for a unique production simply titled ‘The Show’ to be staged at Warehouse Theatre tomorrow in Windhoek.
“Nobody can deny that Namibia has some excellent performing artists who work very hard at crafting their talents. Sound, lighting and staging also play a very big role in enhancing and complimenting an artist’s vision. These elements can even become characters in their own right during a performance, so with ‘The Show’, performers and technicians are collaborating with each other to celebrate and explore this creative symbiosis,” says Zellmari Brandt, dB Audio Namibia’s event producer.
Showcasing the talents of Big Ben, Ndinomholo, The Fate of Miss H, Blend, First Rain Dance Theatre and Priscilla, all content will be original artwork, some of which will be performed in public for the first time.
‘The Show’ covers various live performance genres such as music, dance and drama to tell an interwoven story, delicately nuanced by the technical component.
“The technical contribution is often not recognised for its creativity. A lighting, sound or stage designer is as much an artist as a singer or dancer. We are creating this opportunity for the Technical Arts and the Performance Arts to play together and make collaborative magic,” explains Brandt. “This is certainly a show unlike anything you’ve ever seen!”
David Benade, dB Audio Namibia’s managing partner, is convinced that this type of experimentation and collaboration will translate into more exciting and polished offerings for their clients and audiences in future. “We thank all the artists and other collaborators on the project – the Warehouse Theatre, NBC Studio 6, A&R Technologies, Collective Productions, Thunderboldt and Lila Productions,” says Benade.
‘The Show’ will start at 20:00, while the Warehouse Theatre’s doors already open at 19.00. Tickets are N$100 and obtainable from Events Today or at the door.
