It's Time to R.U.N
If you’re a fan of action, then this new dark and edgy Cirque de Soleil live-action thriller R.U.N is the show for you! It recently opened at the Luxor in Las Vegas, and Oculus designed the lighting for the theater entrance and pre-show lobby that immerses guests into a gritty cyberpunk urban alleyway.
Walking through the “alley” to the theater, guests encounter an interactive phone booth where they can eavesdrop on the conversation, or visit a tattoo parlor and “get inked” with real-time projections. The graffitied walls appear to be shift in hue and tone, an effect caused by the changing RGBW lighting above. When guests reach the end, they discover a large digital clock ticking down to showtime.
Sr. Associate, Jane You, spearheaded the lighting design for this unique project, which she says, “is a testament to the vision and collaboration of the entire design team, since we had very little time to pull off an ambitious lighting scheme with all the color-changing and custom lighting elements.”
