This week we started removing it from the Theater. The truss system featured nine 1-ton motors, 260 feet of box truss, 400 amps of three phase power, and articulating hinges which gave the system the ability to bend in half and contort into an endless amount of configurations.
The system, with it's original lighting, special affects, and video was the ultimate dance floor light show. The system was raised and lowered throughout the evening to accommodate the evening's programing. For example; The truss was raised while video was played on the movie screens, then lowered for a dance set, raised for the snow and wind machines to be used, then lowered to lift an aerialist for a trapeze performance, etc. It was an expensive piece of equipment that gave the space versatility.
