Creative Technology were appointed by our client Peoples to provide immersive projection, creative LED and site wide video systems solution for this year’s UAE National Day, on behalf of Officialuaend.
CT delivered large scale projection mapping and a massive 2.2km of ROE Strip over the huge cylindrical performance space with a dedicated playback solution bringing the visually impressive creative LED installation to life.
This UAE National Day took the audience on a generational journey of the UAE’s inspiring pioneers as viewers were transported from sea to space.
Emirati musicians and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra provided a beautiful live soundtrack as the audience followed the story of a group of children who learn about the UAE’s rich culture, present-day achievements and its future goals and ambitions.
Hosted at ADNEC, the main show took place on December 2nd followed by 9 days of shows attended by the general public.
The shows were filled with live performances, unique technologies and rich storytelling that paid tribute to the UAE’s past and the vision of its forefathers. It also featured a tribute to the late Sheikh Khalifa, Former President of the UAE.
The audience were seated in a 108-meter-long portal with full projection – one end representing the UAE’s past, the other its future – and each side adorned with 51 lights.
