FRANCE – ECA2 has created the world’s largest aquatic stage.
It was a new artistic and technological challenge for the ECA2 team to bring about a representation of the forces of nature, staging the four elements merged with the magic of captivating images:
• WATER: two water screens with a 50-metre base, hundreds of water jets, and specially designed moving jets
• AIR: 5 geysers, compressed air to put sensitive equipment under positive pressure
• FIRE: 14 large flames
• LIGHT: 600 underwater projectors, 60 automatic projectors
• IMAGES: 7 videos projectors, 5 laser projectors
The show control system synchronises hundreds of special effects, interacting with more than 50 actors, acrobats and dancers, surrounded by its mysterious and enchanting creatures to perform a touching interpretation of life in the mangrove.
For over 20 years, ECA2 has been creating and producing major events and shows around the world. Renowned for its outstanding creativity, innovative designs and technical expertise, ECA2 delivers unique special events, ceremonies, World Expos, Olympic Games, and permanent shows for theme parks.
