For the 3rd year in a row, RTR PROductions have been an integral team member in the prestigious event White Night. DAE Global the event organisers certainly stepped it up this year putting on a sensational production that surpassed the scale and creativity of prior years. RTR PROductions are honoured to be involved in an event that just keeps going from strength to strength.
We spent many months planning and preparing for the magical event that graces Melbourne CBDs streets for 12 hours every year. From 7pm to 7am many of Melbourne’s city roads are shut down and transformed into stages, light installations and large scale artworks. If you haven’t been to a White Night before I highly recommend you check it out, you will not be disappointed!
Those months of planning came in handy on the day as a few unforeseen changes (including the possibility of poor weather) meant we had backup plans onsite and available. We were rather impressed with the Collins Street stage at 60m2 that was set up by the RTR crew in 19 minutes! A record yet for our team and one to beat for next year.
The 3 main stages consisted of:
Truck stage on Collins street for a large band setup with dancers rotating on the 60m2 elevated stage.
The Birrarung Marr stage and ground support structure 8m x 6m with wings.
And the Bourke Street stage 8m x 4m x 5m ground support truss structure with wings, roof and back.
All in all a successful event and great effort by all crew and operators.
