Showforce has been busy providing event crew at the Emirates Palace and Auditorium for the Abu Dhabi Music and Arts Festival. The Festival programme saw internationally acclaimed artists, like Bill Fontana, the American Ballet Theatre and Michel Fadel, invite students from Abu Dhabi schools and universities inside the Emirates Palace auditorium to watch open rehearsals to take a look at the behind-the-scenes look into what goes into to putting on the perfect performance.
Four of our experienced international crew chiefs and up to fifty crew assisted with the loading and unloading of the artists’ boxes and flights cases, they moved a grand piano, whilst also aiding the lighting and sound technicians and project managers, working with props and helping with the draping for the stage. The crew even had to rehearse the show in order to work with the artists, everything had to be precise and carried out with painstaking attention to detail. Accordingly the same crew were allocated to the project from start to finish.
Showforce has been working on the event since 2010 and the whole team really enjoyed being involved. It is held in an impressive location with many high profile guests were in attendance, including members of the Abu Dhabi royal family. The crew worked brilliantly, delivering exceptionally high standards of service.
