    hey i was a cirque show tonight and i saw the followspots they were using (four i think)

    i couldn't see much but i noted down unique features

    there was a fan at the back of the light (at the bottem, below the what i assume was the globe

    also the gels were on the left hand side of the light (never seen it before all i have seen are at the bottem)

    looked sort of like the selecon performer 2 maybe?

    Which cirque show? Equipment lists for most of them are available on a manufacturer's website, if you search enough.

    If I remember correctly, and this is a big IF here, I thought that all of the Cirque shows used the Robert Juliat Followspots.

    I could be really wrong in saying this, so take it with a Salt lick, but I think that I remember reading that somewhere.

    Does this look familiar?

    as i said i couldn't really see very well, i know that had a great sight system though cus the operators could pin point locations during a complete blackout

    I don't know much about Cirque, but we own 4 RJ Topaze followspots, and they are some of the best I have ever worked with.
