We were commissioned by one of the UAE's leading providers of festival entertainment, Saltimbanco Italiano Global Art Theatre Company, to advise in the design and implementation of a major entertainment zone within Modhesh Fun City 2009, a huge, government-sponsored, family-activity area created annually at the Dubai Airport Expo Centre for the Dubai Summer Surprises Festival.
The final design chosen and built was a giant version of Modhesh’s playroom, with all the elements of the play area designed to be oversized and exaggerated.
Once the elements were finalized, we project managed the entire production and installation of the area, coordinating local manufacturers and international suppliers. To allow suitable entertainment activity, two stages were built and seats were fabricated as giant Lego pieces, dice and dominos, in addition to interactive props and sets, such as a trampoline disguised as a bed and a giant toy-box featuring a three-dimensiona,l audio-visual maze.
The area proved to be the most popular and most attended area within Modhesh Fun City, entertaining thousands of children and their families.
