TORINO WINTER OLYMPICS OPENING

OLYMPIC CEREMONIES, 2006

STUFISH was part of the Film Master team tasked to deliver a spectacular event for the 2006 Turin Winter Olympics Opening and Closing Ceremonies. Drawing heavily on the rich culture of Italy and Turin, STUFISH set out to design some of the iconic centre pieces for the show. For example a gigantic gilded proscenium portal that married the spectacular Italian Baroque style with that of Rock and Roll touring truss system, became the imposing backdrop to the spectacular event unfolding on the sensuous ice surface covering the stadium floor. One of the highlights was the reveal of five suspended rings that were used as large trampoline surfaces before they rotated into a vertical position and created the  iconic Olympic rings which contributed towards the rich texture of the show combining imposing objects with daring acrobatics.
