Enter Tron is a hybrid of club night and dramatic science fiction installation. First created and performed at Sub Club five years ago, this homage to Steven Listberger’s 1982 cult classic film, Tron, has evolved and expanded into a immersive happening.
Working with club techs, installation teams and lighting programmers on the Glasgow creative scene, Enter Tron has become an intermittently staged event with tickets in high demand.
Enter Tron is a three stage project, the geometric ‘grid’ installation, the lighting design and programming, and the performance of a high-quality club soundtrack. Each element is carefully planned and balanced.
The first stage of the experience is the reveal, the entrance effect of seeing the illuminated clubland landscape. The second stage is the impact of the curated lighting treatment; geometric shafts of light, tight precise beams. The third layer is the music selections of the I AM DJ duo of Beta & Kappa, fashioning a pulsing futuristic dance experience to match the visual spectacle.
