PR Lighting on tour with El ChaqueñoPalavecino

Known as ‘ElChaqueño Palavecino’, in reference to being born in the Province of Chaco,Argentina, Oscar Palavecino undertook a recent theatre tour, with an inventory of sound, lighting and LED screens provided by Buenos Aires-based CaioSonido, and including a large number of fixtures from PR Lighting.  

The tour comprised inexcess of eight shows in different cities — all within the province of Buenos Aires.

The lighting rig wasscalable, depending on venue size, but the full inventory of PR Lighting fixtures comprised 16x PR Junior BWS 350; 8x XR1000 Spot and 8x XRLED 590. These conformed to the rider prepared for the tour between Chaqueño Palavecino’sproduction team and CaioSonido.

On the productionside, the team responsible were lighting engineer,Cristian Saieg, supported by Caio Sonido’s president and founder, Ricardo Olivares and Guillermo Wheeler.

Stated Caio Sonido’sJuan Olivares, “The powerful lamp of the PR Junior BWS 350 created a constantly mesmerising lightshow so that sometimes you forgot about the artist and were transfixed just watching the performance of the lights.

“The PR 590 LED Wash also helped build the atmosphere. We used cold colours to recreate the clarityof the environment and warm colours to recreate the heat of the Province of Chaco.”

Summing up, Juan Olivares said the selection of PR Lighting fixtures had been a logical choice.“PR Lighting’s portfolio provides everything an artist needs to enhance their image onstage—whether it is with the variety of gobos on the Spot, the sheerpower of the Beam and the wide-reaching atmospheres that the Wash offers.

“In addition, PR Lighting offers an excellent price/quality ratio. CaioSonido has been a PR Lighting customer for 12 years, with more than 150 products, and we are greatly satisfied with the performance and durability of the equipment.”
