Twelfth Night shaken up with KV2



The Young Vic recently hosted a unique take on Shakespeare’s classic Twelfth Night. The tale received a shake-up as soulful melodies and R&B beats weaved through an enchanting musical adaptation with sound reinforcement courtesy of KV2 Audio products.

It was the latest in a long line of successful KV2 Theatre productions featuring Sound Design by Richard Brooker – who once again chose to use KV2’s EX products to transfer every detail of the performance and energetic musical arrangements from the stage to the audience.
Twelfth Night follows in the footsteps of Dream Girls, Annie, Sister Act and Funny Girl, to name but a few, in successfully deploying KV2’s range of True Point Source loudspeakers and Richard has been instrumental in the rapid rise in profile of KV2 in UK Theatres – a trend that has now been emulated on Broadway and in many European Touring productions with increasing regularity.
Richard comments: “To do any job properly one needs the correct tools. KV2 manufacture an incredible range of products that have been my go-to Speakers since I first tried them back in 2013. With an unbelievably coherent, open and transparent sound the KV2 range all pack a bigger punch than their actual size across the board. My personal favourites are the EX range of active speakers which give me the solutions to any tricky requirements on any show. Twelfth Night was a particularly tricky show! The beautiful set was a combination of a traditional Proscenium look with a long thrust, almost traverse runway stage extension. Absolutely stunning to look at but a real challenge from a sound point of view. With the audience effectively on three sides across three levels it required an ‘Outside the box’ approach in order to deliver clarity, energy and excitement to every audience member – and I didn’t hesitate to specify KV2 for the task. With the help of KV2’s EX 6’s, EX 10’s, EX 26’s and EX 15’s with low end supported by EX 2.5 subwoofers the show came to life sonically and I was able to create an exciting Soundscape for the show that faithfully represented the performance from the cast and band, and delivered the magic of the Direction of this truly original production. Once again a great result using KV2.”

Having worked closely with KV2 since his early adoption of their products five years ago, KV2 Audio’s UK Director Jonathan Reece discusses further about the on-going relationship with Richard Brooker Sound Design. 

Richard really understands our products and achieves a great result when using them. He appreciates that this is as important for us at is for him and always goes the extra mile to ensure that he has an amazing sounding show, giving us the perfect platform to demonstrate the potential of our products to audiences and performers alike.”
