We get an exclusive look at the preparation behind the state of art technology and acrobatics of La Perle by Dragone, the first permanent stage show to arrive in the region.
La Perle’s stage is a hive of activity. With only a couple of weeks until opening night on August 31, the venue – nestled between The W and Westin hotels in Dubai’s Al Habtoor City – is teaming with nearly two dozen personnel, all working to fulfil one man’s indomitable vision.
That man is Franco Dragone, a former director of Cirque du Soleil, who is credited with fusing the high art of theatre and ballet with the audience draw of circus-style entertainment.
When you ask Dragone to produce a show, you don’t give him space in an existing venue. Instead, you construct a whole 10-storey building to hold his stage.
And in the case of the visionary Italian-Belgian artistic director’s latest show, produced exclusively for Dubai, you provide him with a few million litres of water.
