The World’s First All Electric Vehicle Stunt Show
Stufish Teams Up With Melco Resorts & Entertainment To Produce New Show ‘Elēkron’ The Most Electrifying Vehicle Stunt Show In The World
London – 18 Oct: Stufish have announced today that they are teaming up with Melco Resorts & Entertainment, to deliver the world’s first action-packed, all-electric, indoor theatrical vehicle stunt show called Elēkron, in Studio City Macau. Elēkron is set to rock and electrify from 14 December 2018 to 31 March 2019. The new show follows a stellar year for Stufish Entertainment Architects, who have accounted for some of the world’s biggest music tours, including Beyoncé + Jay-Z’s ‘OTR II’, Queen + Adam Lambert, U2’s ‘Experience + Innocence’ and Elton John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.
Bold, jaw-dropping, heart-stopping stunts will light up the arena in a 75-minute show of non-stop, death-defying action that will keep spectators on the edge of their seats. Elēkron features more than 70 powerful electric vehicles – including sports cars, customized buggies, quads, trial bikes, FMX bikes and even a 12m wide biplane flying across the arena – all engaged in a succession of daredevil feats that take place at super close range to the audience.
Powered by the latest electric technology, all the vehicles are bespoke and designed from scratch, and are powered by Tesla motors with a custom-designed control system. More than 150 cast, crew, creative specialists, designers and technicians – including Guinness World Record holders – have been handpicked for the show from nine countries around the globe.
Frederic Winckler, Executive Vice President, Chief Marketing and Brand Officer of Melco Resorts & Entertainment says: “Powered entirely by electricity, Elēkron is a crazy, death-defying stunt show like nothing you have ever seen before. The arena is filled with fireworks and pyrotechnics. Seventy wild post-apocalyptic cars, bikes and buggies are leaping over each other, as their drivers fight over the abandoned power station where the story’s set.”
Ray Winkler, CEO and Design Director of Stufish Entertainment Architects said, “We are thrilled to combine Stufish’s powerful entertainment background with Melco’s impressive track record of delivering world class shows to create the perfect storm that will electrify the audience with our exhilarating new show Elēkron.”
Founded by the late Mark Fisher, Stufish is the recognised leader in permanent, touring and temporary entertainment architecture. The Stufish name has been synonymous with key musical touring shows, including the likes Rolling Stones, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Robbie Williams and many more. Stufish’s latest production in Macau, is part of their wider expansion into the Asian market, which also includes the recent opening of their Hong Kong office.

SOHO Rehearsals Commencing!
Today saw the beginning of SOHO rehearsals!
"Crazy, voyeuristic, unexpected and fast paced, SOHO is a thrill ride of circus, street and theatre in this anything goes trip around the streets where glamour and sleaze rub shoulders.
An iconic soundtrack of familiar music and songs sets the scene for the many changing faces of SOHO through the decades; from the Burlesque of the 50s to the Love and Peace Carnaby Street generation of the 60s, from the disco and street punk of the 70s to the Cool Britannia Pop of the 80s and 90s.
With a talented international cast, soaring aerial tricks, street dance and projections from rock and roll design giants, Stufish, SOHO is a brilliant celebration of London’s world famous district, following the journeys of the energetic and colourful characters who inhabit it. It’s not just a place, it’s a state of mind..."
