The story of Endeavour takes Bear Grylls around the globe and into space. To allow the scale of spectacle required, we created an environment where Bear could climb, fall, base jump, tumble and slide, immersing the audience into his world and delivering death defying stunts.
The design of the stage is based on the concept of a climbing wall, with special climbing hand holds mixed with hidden platforms around the structure, enabling Bear to leap, fly and climb around the set. The whole stage and 12m high mountain is lit with video projection that allows the set to constantly transform into spectacular vistas.
With a combination of three different flying systems, we can fly Bear or props to various places of the stage at high speed.
The whole stage and mountain is lit with video projection that allows the set to constantly transform into spectacular vistas that are sometimes part of the story telling, sometimes background and sometimes on IMAG screens. With a combination of three different flying systems we can fly Bear or props to various places of the stage at high speed and also directly into the audience to a B-stage where Bear shows a member of the audience how to make fire. The show uses a variety of large scale props. The largest and most spectacular prop is the Apollo 13 space module.
Not only did STUFISH design the set, we also assisted in the script development, directed the show, did the costume design and provided production services.
