Aerial crane shows Opening and Closing Ceremonies Entertainment

posted in: News, Uncategorised | 1

November has been a lot of fun for the Incandescence team  as we’ve been devising and producing a specialist aerial crane show in partnership with NewSubstance,  that will be touring to the Middle East.


Rehearsals started outside our training space in Cornwall (much to the amusement of the locals as they witnessed a giant 100-tonne crane pull into Sennen village) then a custom-made giant human net was flown off the crane, with artists and acrobats suspended from it.

Our artists also had the opportunity to play on this structure, creating and devising new aerial material. The artists were winched up to heights of 35 metres, suspended from the crane structure and I must say what amazing views we had over to Lands End!

This structure will then be shipped to Doha where 20 artists and acrobats will be suspended from the crane performing a spectacular synchronized performance.

Aerial crane shows are one of the most exciting elements that can be put into a show. They are generally used for large-scale outdoor events as part of an opening or closing ceremony entertainment.

As a circus production company, we’ve had the opportunity to produce many of these large-scale shows for some amazing events. Highlights would have to be producing the Beyonce support show in Egypt at Port Galib, the Opening Ceremony for the World Cup in Dubai and the Take That stadium tour Progress  Live [ where we devised and created the famous acrobatic water wall].
