Busy summer with more to come.
We’ve just completed two opening ceremonies, on different continents, within the space of just eight days: the culmination of a very busy period for our technical and interpretation teams.
Friday 5th June saw the fruition of months of hard work for our crew in Singapore, who installed a 520m track system suspended from the roof of the National Stadium for the 28th South East Asian Games. A highlight of the show included our system lifting and rotating a 25m strand of DNA.
Friday 12th June saw the successful delivery of the opening ceremony for the inaugural European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan. In a joint venture with Show Canada, we provided a technology-packed stage with a magically appearing lake, a burning outline of a giant petroglyph man and a mountain raised by an assortment of 20 lifts. Our interpretation team drew on their knowledge of materials and finishes to create the giant flown pomegranate and the burning eclipse-effect cauldron.
Both of these major events have been delivered alongside other high-profile projects such as the UK pavilion for the 2015 Expo in Milan. Meanwhile, we have further exciting projects due to emerge from our workshops, more of which will be revealed as the summer evolves.
