The ‘Mother of the Nation’ show is a forty-five minute tribute to Her Highness Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarek Al Ketbi and was created for only two performances opening on 21st March 2016 and televised throughout the United Arab Emirates.
STUFISH has continued its relationship with Balich Worldwide Shows in creating this special event and was responsible for the design of the whole performance space. This included everything from the original seating layouts, to the creation of the stage design and large scale props.
Based on a design theme of flower petals, STUFISH created a 70m wide petal proscenium that embraced the audience in an immersive projected environment, framing the action and storytelling on the large stage. The stage design included two large revolving areas that allowed the props to be brought on stage and create the various settings throughout the show. Props included a large ramp with waterfall of falling rice, the recreation of a traditional street scene, a rotating stepped bridge of light and an 8m wide by 4m high kinetic flower for the finale.
