We wanted to expand the scenic environment out onto ice as much as possible so that it could really work with and compliment the choreography of the ice skaters. This was achieved by creating a central hub of eight roll drops in a square formation and a further two out at the front of ice, all of which were projected onto with video content creating an immersive audience experience.
The 12m long drops could all be fully up to provide a clear ice surface for the large group choreography, but being individually programmable, they could also provide an ever changing landscape of projection surfaces that danced with the ice skaters around them.
The Room of Crystals was the beating heart of the story, providing a visually stunning physical aesthetic that worked with the digital world it was framed against. The piece was meticulously designed so that each of the 37 crystal shards were individually angled and operated so that we could create a wide variety of looks as it appeared in different guises throughout the show.
This beautiful yet simple set provided the perfect backdrop to showcase the fabulous costumes, stunning video design and wonderful ice skating, all together creating the exciting world of Atlantis.
