SIXTY82 Tower System Raises Expectations for Royal Conservatoire of Scotland
This news story is from our UK Sister company, A.C. Entertainment Technologies:
UK – The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS), one of the busiest performing arts venues in Scotland, purchased a SIXTY82 Model M Tower System as part of its ongoing drive to give students and schools access to state-of-the-art backstage technologies used in major productions worldwide.
Founded in 1847, RCS in Glasgow is consistently ranked as one of the world’s top performing arts education institutions.. Each year it welcomes students from more than 60 countries to receive the very best education in music, drama, dance, production and film.
A major performance venue with world-class facilities, and an industry-endorsed provider of courses covering backstage equipment training, RCS invests in the very latest technologies to deliver a learning environment geared towards careers in production backstage as well as on the stage.
When RCS received outreach funding from the William Grant Foundation to run performing arts-based schools engagement activities, it decided to invest a tower lift system to showcase RCS’ production programmes in a more varied and interesting way.
Malcolm Stephen, Stage Supervisor and Tutor of Stage Technology at RCS, commented:
It also allows us to take shows to a wider range of venues, as well as creating pop-up venues within the RCS. And of course, having the system means that we can train technical students on its installation and use.
Easy to use and assemble, the SIXTY82 Model M Tower System can be raised and lowered as appropriate, depending on the requirements of the specific performance or event. This provides users with an elegant solution for raising and supporting a temporary or permanent truss lighting rig.
The Model M Tower System was supplied to RCS by SIXTY82 exclusive UK distributor, A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd (AC-ET). The project was handled by Johnny Marshall in the company’s dedicated Rigging sales division.
SIXTY82 is an alliance featuring innovators from three countries with over 100 years of entertainment industry leadership between them. They came together to bring a fresh view into the market, providing innovative, next generation trussing and staging systems.
