In April 2019, world renowned artistic director and show creator, Luc Petit, has launched a brand new show in Qingdao, China named the ‘Qing Show’. This permanent show was in development for more than 4 years by international teams from Luc PETIT and Art Team Group Asia Ltd.
The grand opening of this exceptional and one of a kind show attracted more than 1500 spectators.disguise solution sits at the heart of the production with disguise 4x4pro’s powering the show’s extensive video projection mapping.
The show is staged in an innovative immersive theatre seating up to 1,500 spectators, featuring two sets of revolving bleachers and a 360º view of the action. The massive 50-metre wide water stage is backed by a beautiful 15-meter-high projection screen. More than 430 special equipments, 263 costumes, 2D 3D flying systems and thousands of props are used on set for this unique storytelling show.
Qing Show tells the epic tale of The Eight Immortal Beings whose adventures represent archetypes within traditional Chinese society, each applying their unique strength as they work together to cross the sea. Along the way they encounter armies loyal to dragons and a variety of obstacles and must work together to succeed in their quest. “This is a large venue with a cyclorama, big inflatables and some fountains as projection surfaces,” says Stan Walbert of Stello Productions who managed the video mapping for the show. “This ambitious project took four years to design and create. The venue was built for the show and projectors, so their position and coverage had to be determined precisely.” Stan and the team used disguise’s projection study tool to determine luminosity, coverage and the number of projectors to use. He adds, “disguise’s Projection Study tool was an essential part of the process ensuring accuracy in positioning of projectors, as well as providing a way for the content team to test their files with the disguise project.”
