︎G.E.M. ︎2017 ︎Queen of Hearts World Tour
QUEEN OF HE
Keeping up with the sheer diversity of G.E.M. two and a half hour shows was an exciting challenge for my first show direction.
We worked together under the same roof for 3 months to deliver the scenography, content and lighting design for this highly anticipated world tour.
Our solution was to create a constantly evolving, responsive stage environment that could turn on a dime to keep up with her energy and stylistic shifts. Five moving stage lifts, and LED screens covering almost every surface created a fully programmable scenography that brings G.E.M’s multifaceted world to life. Including the design of bespoke instruments such as a piano and a gyroscopic e-drum kit, this programmable space even extends out into the audience with thousands of LED light sticks, immersing audience and performers alike in one big media canvas.
