As part of our continued jaunt down event memory lane, we’re looking at some of our past events in the Sternberg Clarchives – this time the event in question has a distincly ‘Film by Sofia Coppola’ feel…
Our client Ernst & Young was holding an event at The Wallace Collection for their clients and guests. They came to us for a dramatic and innovative show focussed around the element of surprise. To fulfil the brief, we created and choreographed a bespoke performance featuring dancers and musicians.
The act began with dancers wearing traditional 18th Century costumes performing court-style period dancing accompanied by an acoustic violinist and guitarist. The performers then had a dramatic change of clothes into more edgy, brightly-coloured, corseted costumes which took influence from Sophia Coppola’s “Marie Antoinette”with a Vivienne Westwood 80s punk twist. The instruments were also swapped from acoustic to electric and the sequence was brought into the 20th / 21st Century as they performed to a bespoke eclectic arrangement which progressed from the traditional fanfare to Adam and the Ants through The Kaiser Chiefs and finishing on The Strangeloves – I Want Candy.
If you’re looking to bring a touch of 18th Century France to your next event (without all the beheadings) … (or with, it’s your event) then get in touch on 020 8877 1102 or email email@example.com
