LA PERLE

by DRAGONE

LaPerle_Logo_Blue

Back in a theater specially designed for the first permanent show in the Middle East directed by Franco Dragone, whom we rejoined for a totally immersive visual experience.

It is in a venue with a unique and organic aspect, imagined by Jean Rabasse, that we bring history, the artists and the audience on a journey through video projections covering almost every centimeter of the room: floor, back wall in the distance, and the different strata composing the walls surrounding the public.

A dreamlike and architectural content, a real indoor architectural mapping, worked in trompe l’oeil evoking, from afar or near, a past, present or future vision of Dubai.

In addition to the video content supporting the stage performances, Franco Dragone asked us to produce a 3-minute sequence telling the story of the Pearl of Origins (our Earth) using all the surfaces and special effects available (smoke, laser, water… ). A complex and unique creation, with millions of pixels that required 6 months of work.
