The Salto Natale circus on tour
This innovative circus is directed by Rolf and Gregory Knie
The Salto Natale Circus European "Synfunia" tour offered its first show in Luxembourg with Gregory Knie as Director. The tour took off in Luxembourg and will be touring through other european countries such as Bern, Zurich, Berlin, Brussels, Frankfurt and Dusserldorf. Ballerinas, comedians, acrobats are all part of a show that brings together artists from many different countries to perform under a tent with a capacity for 1700 spectators.
Z-audio Animatec in collaboration with the D.A.S. distributor in Switzerland, Animatec, handled the on stage audiovisual set-up in Bern and Zurich. The D.A.S. Variant arraya were the sound systems chosen for this event. Technicians from Z-audio Animatec and the circus used the Ease Focus program to calculate the location for the arrays providing superb sound coverage throughout the tent. Six Variant powered line arrays were installed per side. Each array was comprised of two Variant 112A and four Variant 25A. The low frequencies were covered with six Aero 218A.
For the technicians, the fact that the Variant systems were installed in a couple of hours was outstanding. They were also very impressed with the ease-of-use of the systems. "We needed a system that was easy to use without jeopardizing the sound quality. Clear and well defined acoustics during dialogues is just as important as power in music playback. The Variant systems fulfill both these requirements so we are very pleased with these systems" comments the circus technical director after using the Variant for the first time in Bern. Remo Zollinger, director of "Z-Audio Animatec" affirms, "We are happy to provide high quality sound for such an important show. We wish Salto Natale's team a succesfull tour with the best circus production".
This innovative circus directed by Rolf and Gregory Knie, very well known in the circus families, keeps the spectators on edge throughout the show with spectacular performances by contorsionists with corporal positions that are impossible to imagine, jugglers, athletes with exceptional ability and control of their bodies.
The soundtrack is also a strong point keeping up with every act that is happening in the circus ring. In essence, it is a very entertaining and spectacular show that is reccomended for both its quality and originality. This circus, which does not use animals, creates its shows with the abilities developed by the human body. A show which allows your imagination to become your own trapeze artist.
