Future Vision – Inspirational disruption in light
The current lighting world is constantly jarred and changed by digital disruption and new technology bringing endless amounts of possibilities and adding much higher costs. Harnessing the technology is foremost in everyones mind and yet the biggest change of all is to us. Changing the way we work, charge and communicate with ourselves and others is foremost in ensuring success and survival in the future of lighting. Taking the essence of collaboration presented in Ian McGrath’s book “Caretaker of the Vision” I have found all sorts of fun ways to bring the human connection back into the process of a digital world. Lets touch upon areas like live story boards, open chat messengers, design software, show calling networks right through to environmentally friendly power. Turn disruption into inspiration to drive your passion in lighting.

The makings of a connected city – Auckland
Sydney Opera House renewal project – theatre machinery panel discussion
In 2015 the Opera House announced it would self-fund a $45 million Renewal project to replace theatre equipment that had reached the end of its operational life in the Joan Sutherland Theatre, improving reliability, functionality and safety in the world-famous theatre. The NSW Government contributed a further $26 million to enable additional venue improvements, which took place during a seven month closure between May and December 2017. This project was the first of a series of projects that will be the biggest upgrade to the Opera House since it opened in 1973.
On New Year’s Eve 2017 the Opera House reopened the Joan Sutherland Theatre after major building works. Changes to the theatre included:
- A new theatre machinery system that is quieter, safer and more reliable;
- Improved grid deck providing a more flexible system of hoists and a clearer, more open work area;
- Partial replacement of the auditorium lighting and a new followspot room;
- Upgraded orchestra pit and the installation of a state-of-the-art acoustic enhancement system to better distribute orchestral sound around the JST and improve playing conditions for musicians; and
- Six additional female toilets to better service audience members.
This panel of key stakeholders will discuss the different aspects of the stage machinery component of the project and offer a variety of perspectives, challenges and opportunities including project management, procurement planning, workforce planning right through to the end user experience. Learn about the project that replaced technology and machinery that had reached the end of its working life, open new areas to the public and ensure the Opera House is equipped to welcome as many people in as many ways as possible.
