The Sternberg Clarchives: Canon’s Cologne Cabaret

June 03, 2011


 

This week we’re delving deeper into the Sternberg Clarchives and blowing the dust away from a few of our older events… “Is that a spider?” No it’s a Halloween Booking from 2003 … Etc

For this corporate event for Canon in Cologne’s prestigious Maritim Hotel for 450 guests, our client wanted to create the feel of a 1930′s cabaret club with a variety of circus, music and dance performances throughout the evening.You may recognise this picture from one of our iPadam Sternberg Powerpoint PresentationsWe put together a bespoke entertainment package featuring various stage acts incorporating Canon’s red and white corporate colours and logo where possible. This event fulfilled the Hoops and Dreams of a Certain act... Yes, I've used that gag beforeA 9-piece Big Band performed the stings and background music between performances, aerial silk duo Serenity performed a choreographed piece, Hoop La La did their tongue in cheek hulahoop routine complete with 1920s art deco inspired costumes, top vocal harmony trio The Puppini sisters performed in beautiful vintage dresses, our 6 piece dance troupe performed a specially choreographed piece featuring The Charleston, The Can Can, tap dancing and roller-skating, and for the grand finale, light jugglers Feeding The Fish pre-programmed their LED batons with the Canon logo.Female Vocal Trio the Pupini Sisters in action in Cologne.When Canon called and asked "Can you do a CanCan?" We Cannily Replied; "Canon, of course we Can!" Cabaret String Quartet String Fever Forgot all but one of their Instruments and were forced to 'share' Sadly this isn't our new entertainment concept "Organic Keynote Speech" - rather, one of the Canon VIPs making a speech while Deluxe Band prepare for their performance. Anyone who has trouble dancing under normal circumstances should probably not try it on wheels.If you’ve got an event that you’d like to turn into a vintage Cabaret Club… or anything else, then get in touch!.
