Roles
  • Concept
  • Pre-Visualisation
  • Lighting Design

We designed the Opening Ceremony for the prestigious Louvre Abu Dhabi. For an audience of global VIPs - including Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and President Macron - we created a dynamic light show choreographed to a live orchestra; a solution that retained the beauty of Jean Nouvel’s architecture with minimal visible rigging. The climax of the show included 8000 mini LEDs floating down to the audience, synchronized with exterior light beams that encircled the dome and announced the opening to the world.
