Mandate: Art Direction of the interior of a theatre
Realisation date: 2015
Concept and challenges: Celebrating the city of Dubai, and its transformation into 2 generations of mainly nomadic city in tourist superpower, the new show of the circus of the sun was a tribute to architecture, ephemeral as irremovable.
We designed a wooden case with very curved shapes, symbolizing the desert on which Dubai has grown.
The light shades of the wood are modulated in sandy colors in contact with the abundant light, dispensed by an enclosure of windows, making the inside and the outside difficult to define, like a mirage.
An optical illusion reinforced by a mirror material deposited on the ground and in the external stairs, potential promise of an oasis on which the theater would have been deposited.
