The Year is 2088. Raging electrical storms have brought destruction upon mankind and civilisation as we know it is a thing of the past. Set in a post apocalyptic world where there is no fuel, a nomadic tribe of survivors work together to battle and overcome the forces of nature and harness electrical power.
Legend has it, deep in the desert there exists a power station. Through danger and determination their drive is to find a new home, a place that can become a land of hope and a new beginning: ELĒKRŎN.
STUFISH DESIGNED AND PRODUCED THE WORLD’s FIRST ALL ELECTRIC, SPECTACULAR STUNTSHOW
We set out with an interesting challenge, to convey what it would feel like to experience the exhilaration of a live action stunt show in an intimate arena. The creation of the central feature of the stage is power station that becomes the projected backdrop, whilst also dynamically changing throughout the show to allow people and vehicles to enter, drive up, ride down, do tricks and reveal the death defying stunts that the performance is created around. Every detail of the production from the large-scale stage set to the intricacy of the vast quantity of vehicles was created in our London design studio.
The vehicular designs were developed to feel part scavenged and part customised by the characters of the tribes in the show. Each vehicle has parasitic plug-in electrical components that bring the vehicles to life and gives them a heart beat and an indication of their level of electrical charge. The design of the stage together with the large scale props takes references from Steam Punk, Industrial, Sci Fi, Deco, classic movies and futuristic. The whole show is created to enhance the ability of the performers and the vehicles to deliver the best and most immersive experience for the audience in a safe but exciting way.
This electrifying adventure pushes the possibilities of what’s possible with electric vehicles and performers in a 75minute showcase. It is another example of how Stufish is always trying to further the conversation about the future of entertainment design and redefine the live experience.
The show features dramatic, dangerous and dare-devil circus skills mixed with crazy parkour acrobatics, wild fire and pyrotechnics, a flying by plane, thrilling and breath-taking stunt driving sequences involving cars, bikes and buggies.
With over 150 cast, crew and creative specialists, hand picked from all over the world, Elekron is a non-stop action packed spectacular.
