ACTE3 / LEGACY / MOVE FOR EVENTS

After the huge succes last year, on general demand of the public, this great tribute band has returned to a full house in Acte3!  An even bigger crowd was convinced and had the best of time remembering and enjoying the King of Pop.

MOVE Studio’s Recital 2015: surprise with NEW movie choreos!

Tags : 

MOVE Dance Center / Recital 2015

 

Working with close friends always is a completely different experience.  And it is with pride (and lots of enjoyment) that we participated once more in the stage creation, creative support and production of the annual student recital show of MOVE Dance Center.

This time we (but most of all the teachers) faced an extra challenge: come up with completely new choreographies for new movies, no traditional dance or musical movies were allowed.  The concept received the title “MOVE Studio’s” and took place as a guided visit of the famous ‘Aalsters Movie Studio: MOVE’.

AoE assisted in the stage design, lighting design and joined the think tank for show director Filip Van Keer, a part from that we were in charge for a whole series of background movies in the movie themes to match the choreographies on the multi screen setup.

The challenge was not only accepted but the bar was even raised by taking less obvious movies to create choreographies for, which resulted in very surprising new creations!

Discover Red Riding Hood, 12 Years A Slave, Kill Bill, Catch Me If You Can, The Secret Garden… all except the movies that were to be expected: Leslie Vermeulen even dared a challenging theme like Schindlers’ List and translated it into a breath taking piece that kept the audience in emotional shivers.

A job super achieved by the MOVE teachers.

SUPPORT BY ELITE OF EVENT PROFESSIONALS

SPECIAL OLYMPICS /

Big support by elite of Belgian Event professionals

A point that in my opinion has gotten to little attention from our Belgian professional event media: this event was largely supported by an impressive number of volunteers, approximately 6000p, but ALSO by a large number of Belgian event professionals both from the freelance field as from within the agencies.

Some agencies came up with fund raisers, others convinced their clients with every new briefing to sponsor an athlete.  Still others sent us experienced staff to reinforce the coordination team.  Like one said after the event: “with this team NO WORRIES!”.

Interesting detail, no one of all these people used the event for personal advertising, to aim for new business targets or have any personal benefit.  They all joined the team because they supported the cause!  Thank you guys, it was an privilege to have the support of such an elite team of experts!

(only some of the professionals in the pictures, there were a lot more 🙂

SPECIAL OLYMPICS CLOSING CEREMONY SO2014

Tags : 

SPECIAL OLYMPICS /

After one week of successful games the Eurasian Special Olympics athletes the 2014 Special Olympics EUROPEAN SUMMER GAMES Antwerp have festively ended in the Antwerp Sportpaleis.  A musical show for 12000 fans, athletes and volunteers created by Jean-Pierre Deschepper with artistic direction by AoE inspired by a creative concept by Lot Seuntjes by Theater Tol was presented to a great audience.

In BELIEVE, the Opening Ceremony, a Special Girl met a Special Boy during the Games week in the young girls dream, in this Closing Ceremony we see her future wedding with the boy, as part of her hope vision.

HOPE, the Closing Ceremony was a musical celebration of love, friendship, respect, self confidence and success!

Two ceremonies, one story.  Where the Opening Ceremony was “BELIEVE” and illustrated the dream of a Special girl, in the Closing Ceremony “HOPE” we have the girl wake up after a beautiful dream filled with hopes for her future, a normal future like any other young girl would dream about: meeting someone, falling in love, a proposal, and finally marriage to start a life happy ever after.

The Closing Ceremony was a musical show as where the Opening Ceremony was a visual show.  The main story line was the love story starting the “Games of the Heart” message in “BELIEVE” that continues in this show.

The Girl comes back from the Games where she has participated, the boy was a volunteer assisting, cheering… and their romance grew.  During the 2 hour show filled with musical performances by no less than Stijn Meuris, Sandra Kim, Axel Hirsoux and Natalia, the ‘dream scenes’ illustrated the life of The Girl, still accompanied by the Dream People, that came with her from her dream when waking up.
