World leaders gathered in the newly constructed Congress Center of Expo to experience a perfectly implemented mixed-media performance conceived together by Alex Burgos and Andree Verleger, with peak content immersion and an audience completely absorbed in the production.
The concept of the show is an emotional story depicting the history of energy as a moving force, from the evolution of our solar system to the vision of energy in the present and the future. The show was a technically challenging multimedia presentation fusing interactive drone spheres, 3D visual effects, a specially created sound system design, aerial systems, and effective choreography performed by 300 artists, along with the clever use of light design and robotic components. It helped this expo’s opening ceremony to be an emotional stimulation of the senses.
