Perception---you have that power.

There is purpose in design. There is information in a setting. There is truth in your environment. Fake or real, it's there.

More Lighting Instruments Found at Wits

An old floodlight found at the Wits Theatre
Every theatre needs to have an instrument that looks so old it is older than Yoda, right? Here's a floodlight that fits the description.
And here is the view from the front:

And, to contrast that old instrument with modernity, here are two favourites: the Source Four Zoom and the Martin 300.
The Source Four Zoom continues the trend of South African lighting designers prefering zoom instruments over fixed angle instruments.

  And at the cyc are these quad cyclights:

And the sidelighting work horse of this theatre is the Par Can, pictured below.

Promoting the snazzy city feeling in the lobbies, the directional signs are done in neon lights.
