Blackout has the Right Moves
UK – Blackout supported the organisers of Move It celebrating its tenth anniversary with a fantastic show and event at Olympia Grand. More than 24,000 dancers of all ages participated in an array of classes and spectacular performances over the three days.
Blackout’s Will Bryant has been working on Move It for the past three years, and it has become a staple job in his diary. He states: “It’s a fun job to do, and it was a pleasure to be working with production company One Big Star and production managers Anna Anson and Vicki Evans from Ops Squad once again. There are some tricky elements, such as the canopy roofs on the main stage and the freestyle stage, but they looked great. Mostly it’s an event that brilliantly showcases the versatility of our Easibuild pipe and drape system, with which we built nine dance studios for the occasion.”
From hip hop to contemporary and ballet, Move It hosted over 240 dance classes, ranging from beginners to advanced sessions. The main stage saw spectacular performances from an array of dance companies from across the UK. In addition to the main stage’s canopy roof, Blackout drapes also created the backdrop behind its LED screen. On either side of the stage Blackout drapes created wings, separating the event from the neighbouring show, Perform. Drapes also graced the Showcase stage and nine dance studios, the latter were created by a total of 300 metres of pipe and drape.
