Clay Paky Mythos draw the sky at Durban Christian Centre’s parking lot
Thankfully no one was injured in a massive fire, which burnt down Durban Christian Centre in Mayville, Kwa Zulu Natal on the evening of 8th June. Three days later, the sky was lit up by 12 Clay Paky Mythos, all pointed towards a star, as the congregation met together for a service held in their parking lot.
One of the largest churches in Durban, the 5500 seat auditorium is known as the Jesus Dome. Having regularly lit events in this venue, lighting designer Michael Broderick along with his friend in the industry, Brandon Bunyan of Black Coffee, came up with an idea to use the Mythos fixtures in an act of compassion for the church’s loss.
“When we told DWR’s Duncan Riley about our idea, he insisted that the globes in the Mythos be 100% new and that the lights be freshly serviced,” said Brandon. “He then sent for his Durban branch crusade Captain, Nick Barnes, to put the action into place. Nick also set up the fixtures.”
