Unlimited Productions uses BGR70 Truss for B2S presents DJ Paul Elstak


On April 15th 2017 Ahoy Rotterdam was the host for the event ‘B2S presents DJ Paul Elstak’. Unlimited Productions was approached by B2S for the design and production.

In the client briefing for the concept and stage design the focus was on Paul Elstak and his passion for the city of Rotterdam. This focus combined with the choice to translate this in an abstract way, has been the starting point of the stage design. The Erasmus Bridge is recreated in the frame of the central LED display, mirrored. By using light fixtures the cables of the Erasmus Bridge could be created. This way we were able to visualise the Erasmus Bridge with its cables without using an actual fixed custom decor and it being a literal translation of the original bridge.

Unlimited Productions used the Prolyte BGR70 Truss for this project as decor. The BGR70 is implemented as the hoisting part of a crane. In combination with regular trusses these shapes are relating back to the harbour of Rotterdam. During the show these cranes were used to alternate acts, for instance the cage attribute of the dancers. The see through LED displays as backdrop come from the idea of recreating the skyline and high buildings of Rotterdam. The content on the screens was corresponding with this theme.

I really think truss should not be sold unless the person completes this course. There is a lot of information that is very good - people don’t always realize the complexity of trussing systems. There are many things that uniformed safety officers want, that actually at the end of the day could result in creating an issue. It’s a very good course
