Events Evolution performs with flying colours


A Night of Worship at United Family International Church in Mutare led by minister Michael Mehendere filled the venue with worshippers and uplifting music. Well known throughout Africa, Mehendere has worked with some notable musicians on the continent, as well as being a senior pastor, so an inventory that would elevate the evening gospel service was required.

Blessing Bero of Events Evolution was approached for lighting design, with Tatenda Rushwaya running the board for the show. Using a mix of Chauvet DJ fixtures, Bero focused on creating warmth for the event through washes and special effects.

‘UFIC Mutare has a good stage, but it is not very large, so it was important to create depth by alternating patterns of shadows and light,’ said Bero. ‘We used eight EVE F-50Z Fresnels, rigged on the balcony of the venue, to wash a warm feel of light for backing vocalists and some band members. The spill of light from that angle worked as a side warm wash for the leading vocalists as well. For the main FOH lighting, we used six EVE E-100Z spots for all the leading vocals and MCs.’

The flexibility of the EVE fixtures helped the Events Evolution team create varied looks throughout the service. ‘We like their manual zoom, as it allowed us to create an even field of light while we changed the coverage area,’ said Bero. ‘The crisp edges of the beam were also very good for spotlighting people on the stage.’

A collection of 24 SlimPAR Tri 12 IRC fixtures was used to add colour to the service. Most of these RGB LED washes were hung on upstage and side truss or positioned on totems, while other units were used as truss warmers.

Bero also used eight Intimidator Hybrid 140SR fixtures, along with four Chauvet Professional Rogue R2 Wash units, for specials and aerial effects, to add power to some of the leading songs. ‘This was a high-energy event, and we wanted to reflect that in light,’ said Bero.
