Theatre Concert Come Together was the best selling show in Denmark in 2009: 100.000 audience members bought a ticket. That’s 10% of Copenhagen’s inhabitants. Theatre Concert Come Together, based on The
Beatles songbook, sold out a run of 125 shows in an 800 seat venue. Due to this success, a re-run is
planned from September 9th to December 9th 2010. Theatre Concert Come Together was originally
produced by Østre Gasværk Theatre in Copenhagen.
Theatre Concert transforms traditional rock concerts and traditional musicals into a brand new genre. This form is a mix of concert and theatre, - allowing the concert to be staged theatrically and the music to be radically interpreted. While the shows do include a lot of aerial-work, it’s important to bear in mind that this is a band and singers performing a concert. There is no playback, no sing back, no dialogue, no storyline and no biographical references to the makers. What stuns the audience is that these people flying above their heads are not acrobats, but musicians and singers, actually playing and singing live.
SCENETEK was in charge of the technical and staging equipment. For the show they delivered a system of 7 STAGEMAKER SM 10 Hoists with variable speeds and extra brakes plus a programmable control system. This system gave the production team the possibility of programming the movement of very big set pieces safely and effectively.
“We chose the STAGEMAKER motors because they gave the crew and designers a very versatile and easily operated system at a very good price,” says Mr SIDELMANN, Manager at SCENETEK.
