Prismatic World Tour

For Katy Perry’s Prismatic World Tour, TAIT engineered a performance environment that was equally imaginative as it was versatile. Working under the artistic direction of SilentHouse’s Baz Halpin, TAIT produced a full-spectrum set with 3 massive, tracking video triangles at the centerpiece of the design.

The video deck surface can rotate 360 degrees and travels 1 meter below the stage for performer loading.

The triangles track 5 meters upstage and down, as powered by TAIT Navigator, a proprietary automation software platform. Each of the bases contain integrated light and LED tiles. The smallest of the 3 triangles measured 8.8m in width x 4.5m in height; the middle triangle at 16m x 8m and the largest at 23m x 11.6m. With the inclusion of the stage, the pinnacle of the structures topped off at 13.7m in height. The rigging scope of these massive triangles weighed in at 15.8 metric tons.

A video thrust is positioned at the front of the stage, with a center triangle lift. The lift is masked by 3 petal surrounds, each containing a custom triangular video deck structure and 2 actuators.
TAIT also provided the automated rigging for the tour, including a 3-D performer flying rig and 2D tracking rig. Other custom elements include a multilevel, cake-shaped lift with integrated LED and candle-shaped dance poles.
