Dubai is open for business” – a very clear message from the Government, as the UAE celebrated its 49th National Day in style. Encore were proud to support its long term partner, People, with one of the most visually spectacular installations in recent years. Museum of the Future, a 255ft architectural masterpiece, set to open in 2021, was activated for the National Day celebrations with the temporary installation of 49 Clay Paky Mythos within its central void.
With design concept and event production from People, Encore crew worked alongside iRIG, the appointed rigging contractor, to hang the fixtures within a 360-degree, clockface design, from custom-rolled pipe dead hung to the building structure. As the site is currently still under construction, careful consideration and additional health and safety measures had to be implemented and followed to ensure that all crew could seamlessly work around the active site.
Lighting designer Tony (Turbo) Hall worked alongside the Encore programmer as the light show ran live for 6 nights. The design of the rig allowed for various key looks, ranging from tight beams all focused to the centre of void, changing between the red, white and green colours of the UAE, to stunning aerial effects as the fixtures tiled out towards the nearby Emirates Towers. It is great to see the UAE events industry bouncing back, with an extremely busy month for Encore.
