The Theater Festival — Sensation at UNIT.City / MAG WASP
From June 7 to 13, UNIT.City hosted a big open-air theater festival "Seven". Every day, a new theater performed on the stage of the innovation park, demonstrating to the audience all the variety of modern theatrical art. Solo performance, stage improvisation, performances with live musical accompaniment — stunning plays satisfied the tastes of every theater-goer. The stage of the new festival was equipped with the sound system from MAG Audio.
Every evening the open-air theater at Unit.city gathered a full auditorium. Such stars of Ukrainian theater as Bohdan Beniuk, Olesia Zhurakivska, Anatolii Khostikoev, Mykhailo Shchur, Yaroslava Kravchenko and others played on stage of the festival.
The leitmotif of the entire festival was finding answers to questions to yourself — living in the moment, self-realization, finding your own place in a rapidly changing world. Each new performance overwhelmed the audience with a new wave of thoughts and feelings. And when actors interacted with the spectators, it helped them to embrace the ideas of the plays even more deeply. Everything worked organically in order to make every visitor feel as part of the performance.
As for the technical support, the MAG Audio systems were used to deliver sound. The MAG WASP line array was flown as PA — 8 modules on each side. The unique WASP line array components incorporate the latest technology in reducing distortion. This allows for speech reproduction with great clarity while delivering unexpectedly high dynamics, ideal for theatrical performances and live music.
For low-frequency support, 2 x MAG WASP-S18 were installed per side. These high-performance subwoofers can be flown saving space in front of the stage, or they can be ground-stacked.
For the comfort of the actors on stage, 6 x MAG Focus 5 monitors were used. Four of them worked on the stage as reference for the performers, and two more played as in-fill systems: the special shape of the cabinet allows the monitor to be directed vertically to where it’s needed.
Olena Lazovych's Workshop, the Wild Theater, the Black Square, the Actor, the Golden Gate, the Kyiv Academic Drama and Comedy Theater on the left bank of the Dnipro and the Ivan Franko National Drama Theater took part in this project.
The technical support was provided by the rental company PROFI.
