One of the most famous event venues in The Netherlands has been thoroughly renovated in recent months and transformed into an intimate restaurant with high-tech decor. Madame Jeanette is the successor of dinner show Pandora, which ended early this year, and is the culinary theatre of 2019, with all the ingredients for an unforgettable dining experience.
It is an intense evening full of visual spectacle, where visitors dine in the middle of a vibrant story that is told in a visual, musical and culinary way. In recent months Studio 21 has been completely rebuilt especially for this show, with the kitchen in the center of the room and a high-tech decor in which the stage, the video and audio are in a 360-degree setting around the guests.
Dutch lighting, audio, and rigging company Chain was responsible for the technical production. Because of the complete round set up, the decision was made to use six circles in the decor. In the middle of the room a 6mtr FD34 circle was used for the center video. On the outside, a 270 degree LED screen was hung on a HD44 circle of 40m. Amazing visuals are presented during the show that sets the scene. In between the smallest and biggest circle 4 additional HD44 circles of 8, 20, 30 and 36m were added for rigging the lighting fixtures.
Paul Chamalaun of Chain commented:
“The entire creative concept is based on an ‘in-the-round’ scenario. This is also the reason that
forthe spacing and shape of the lighting plan circles were used.
In practice, you will find a lot in a ceiling like Studio 21’s, from air conditioners to suspension points and other steel construction parts. Lennart Lindhout, our rigger, has fully mapped the studio in the preliminary phase to achieve both the total maximum load and clearance.”
The development of the show is in the hands of producers Tribe Company and TWOFIFTYK, both agencies with a lot of experience in devising and producing (international) music events like ‘De Vrienden van Amstel Live’ and ‘Armin Only’. Together with the very latest technology provided entirely by Chain, the ‘Madame Jeanette’ show is ready for the future!
