SPRING AWAKENING 2018
In August 2018 Wes Bluff designed lighting for the spectacle Spring Awakening in collaboration with Under Ground Broadway at the Metro Arts Theatre in Brisbane. Lighting was supplied by Krank'd Productions.
Spring Awakening is a Tony Award-winning rock musical with music by Duncan Sheik and book and lyrics by Steven Sater. The musical is based on the controversial 1891 play of the same title by Frank Wedekind. This alternative rock musical follows the troubling thoughts of late-nineteenth century teenagers who are struggling with hormones and sexuality in a time where such topics were not discussed.

Rent follows the life of a group of friends struggling to make it in New York's East Village. This captivating performance showcases the groups heartbreak as they strive to fulfil their dreams, whilst facing the challenge of dealing with HIV and AIDS. This Jonathan Larson classic has been showcased around the world since 1996 and features popular hits such as Seasons of Love and Take Me or Leave Me.
W Hotel is a Luxury hotel chained with a focus on younger modern style. In September 2018 Krank'd had the honor of providing the lighting design and fixtures for the spectacular grand opening of their brand new hotel right in the centre of Brisbane's CBD.
Wes Bluff's lighting design for this project complemented the overall quirky and futuristic features of the hotel. There were many elements to this project that were both different and challenging for the Krank'd team but the final outcome was outstanding and literally light up the room which made it all worth it.
