Abu Dhabi 40th National Day Celebrations

This 60 minute spectacular stadium production mixed grand scale projections, aerial performances and choreography and included 120 international specialist aerialists, skaters and acrobats from 25 countries, as well as over 3000 local performers, volunteers and military personnel including expert horsemanship. The narrative united the past, present and future of the United Arab Emirates and its people into a lively and spectacular performance with a scale and complexity seldom seen in the region.

The team led on performance and production from concept through to the final delivery over 8 months, including a research and development stage in France before re-locating to Abu Dhabi for on-site rehearsals 2 months prior to the show.
