If you can see the Great Wall of China from Space, then it’s more than likely that you can see whoever’s looking at the Great Wall of China from The Shard – the tallest building in the European Union and the second tallest free standing structure in the UK. And if you’re taking in the view of someone taking in the view of the Great Wall of China from Space, what better accompaniment than Chinese Entertainment? And if you’re writing a blog about Chinese entertainment at The Shard, what better way to start it than with a long, winding paragraph about practically nothing? I can’t think of any better way. Read on for more.
For a recent event at The Shard, we provided an array of amazing Chinese entertainment to fit with the event’s theme as well as a couple of other surprise acts throughout the evening. Entertaining guests as they entered the venue was our strolling magician who performed a selection of Chinese inspired magic tricks whilst dressed in traditional costume. Taking further inspiration from the China theme, our Chinese Ribbon Dancers performed ambiently in full costume as guests arrived at The Shard. Music came courtesy of our Chinese Musical duo who provided a soundtrack of traditional folk music from the country as guests enjoyed the view and the rest of the entertainment.
Breaking from the Chinese theme, our Light Dancers (or Optioscopes) performed a choreographed dance routine in front of the stunning backdrop of London at night. Often utilised as an ambient act, the Light Dancers can also be used for a high impact stage show and work especially well in darkened event spaces. Later on guests were taken by surprise with a Singing Waiters routine that used eight performers at different levels of the venue for maximum impact.
Takle a look at some more pictures from the event below. Thanks to Mark David Hill for the pictures, you can see more of his work at mark-david-hill.co.uk/
