Broward Center sees the light


Broward Center for the Performing Arts has just completed a $60 million renovation project, with leading lighting technology taking centre stage. Occupying 5.5 acres of palm tree-lined riverfront property in downtown Fort Lauderdale and occupying a gorgeous modernistic building designed by American Institute of Architecture Gold Medal winner the late Benjamin C Thompson, the multi-venue theatre and entertainment complex is one of the most popular theatre venues in the States thanks to its beautiful setting and diverse range of theatrical, entertainment and event offerings.

Lighting specialist Chauvet Professional’s Rogue R1 Spot moving head fixtures – 12 in all – were evenly spaced around the centre of the ballroom to dramatic effect. The Rogue R1 Spot features a rotating 3-facet prism for stunning aerial effects, seven interchangeable gobos for custom looks, 16.5-degree beam angle, and motorised iris and focus for beam shaping in eight different colours.
