Explosive Equestrian Escapes Opening: Ajman
About this blog
We performed two highlight shows for the grand opening of the $500 million equestrian-themed Escape development in Ajman. The fire show was a powerful mix of fire-dance and acrobatics with customised choreographies suited to the location, and our new premiere show - 'Stilts on Fire' - was played, or I should say exploded, for the very first time.
The new stilt characters are wonderfully surreal just on their own - grandly imposing, animated circus creatures with comic-book style features - and then they start shooting pyrotechnic fountains and rockets out in an explosion of stilt-dancing and music. The audience response was great - noone had seen a performance like that before, ever.
