AN ADVENTURE INTO A NEW MEDIUM OF THEATRE

This story is like a dream - it’s born from the imagination, so that ultimately set the tone. Not only in the way we artistically approached it, but also in the way it theatrically transformed. This is a great showcase in the way a multi-dimensional physical set, combined with a perfect synergy of projected imagery and stunning choreography and acrobatics, can change the dynamics of storytelling and push the boundaries than either medium can do alone.

Our story pays homage to its heroine Sheherazade and her legacy, as it reflects on the power and importance of storytelling as well as inspiring us to never stop pursuing our own imagination.

We wanted the physical world and the imagery world to feel as one. This meant that the direction of the imagery and animation was created as either an extension of the choreography or as its key driver, allowing the show to shift seamlessly between these two worlds.
