Rizer Productions approached us to inject some immersive magic into the launch party of Bvlgari’s Festa collection at London’s spectacular Banqueting House. The aim was to surprise and delight the 200 special guests, Bvlgari clients and influencers, bringing the fabulous and playful essence of the latest jewellery collection to life with immersive performance and dance.
The story of the night played out in three Acts. In the first Act, the champagne reception, otherworldly characters were brought to life by our mercurial Master of Ceremonies. Beautiful frozen statues that appeared in Tim Walker-esque tableaux interacted with guests, and then fell back into their stillness. The characters repeated their single moment for each passing guest – a beautiful, bird like girl humming on a perch, a dancer with a costume made of balloons proffering a pin to burst her dress, twins reflected in a looking glass…
In Act 2 the mischievous Master of Ceremonies and his sidekick Tricky broke the spell and our characters animated, moving through to the dining room. Lit in silhouette, they danced together to a live set by Matteo Boccelli.
By Act 3, after a sumptuous dinner catered by Cellar Society the metamorphosis was complete – our characters were unbound. The choreography for the finale was feisty, high octane, wild. Once more, in the repeating motif, our Master of Ceremonies ushered everyone to the after party. Performers took to the dance floor, the piece moved from choreographed moments to freestyle joy explosion. The FESTA belonged to the guests now.
It was such a pleasure to work with you and your extended team. What wonderful creative creatures you all are! Thank you for being flexible, adaptable, collaborative and ever-smiling. It’s a privilege and a pleasure working with people like you, and I’m looking forward to the next opportunity!
