Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour — потрясающая программа в формате рок-концерта с превосходными спецэффектами, танцевальными номерами и музыкой, в которой несравненное творчество Майкла Джексона сочетается с уникальными творческими возможностями коллектива Cirque du Soleil.

Основа шоу THE IMMORTAL World Tour — яркие и воодушевляющие песни Майкла Джексона, исполненные с необычайной мощью и эмоциональной глубиной. Благодаря прекрасной работе исполнителей в Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour удается особенно точно передать то стремление к любви, миру и единству, которым были полны песни Майкла. Музыканты, среди которых есть и те, кому довелось работать с Майклом, во время представления исполняют композиции вживую, благодаря чему шоу становится еще более захватывающим и интересным.

Целевая аудитория этого шоу — как преданные поклонники таланта певца, так и те, кому гений Майкла откроется впервые. Спектакль прекрасно отражает дар Короля поп-музыки, его душу и творческий поиск, отдавая дань уважения творчеству, нашедшему отклик у многих поколений.

 

Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour - Set Design, Props and Video Projections

Setting the stage Neverland was the venue chosen to hold the first meeting of the show’s creative team. “I remember going to Neverland with the creative team and meeting the grounds people who have remained faithful to Michael,” Director Jamie King reminisces. “I recall seeing the Giving Tree where he wrote among other things most of the Dangerous tour that I danced on, and I truly felt that I was at the right place creating this show.”

“Working on a rock show without a live artist can be challenging,” Set Designer Mark Fisher explains. “In this case, the set design takes on a whole new meaning. Its role is to fill the shadows as it were, and to evoke the artist’s presence.”

The props as storytelling devices

Props and Scenic Designer Michael Curry, who was one of the designers on the THIS IS IT concert tour, has developed props that serve as storytelling devices. For example, a huge book of tales and Michael’s famed glove and shoes become giant props inhabited by nimble dancers. Curry’s goal was to tap into and trigger the fans’ memories of Michael, and to focus attention on the performance. Many of the props are subtext for the songs or support the narrative.

The projections – In Michael’s image

The video projections in THE IMMORTAL World Tour not only act as storytelling devices, they play a key role in making Michael’s presence palpable. Projection Designer Olivier Goulet integrated video content such as footage of Michael’s performances and real-time projections of the performances on stage.

Technical Facts

  • THE IMMORTAL’s versatile stage is highly technical with multiple lifts for scene changes. A large, multi-purpose LED screen was developed: it starts flat on the stage, stands up to act as a projection surface and turns into a ramp. In the middle of the stage, there are large drawers that serve as steps for artists to perform on.
  • The giant shoes directly reference Michael Jackson’s famous penny loafers. They are eight feet long and created from orthopedic foam with a vinyl skin.
  • The six-foot tall glove is a soft sculpture that allows the dancer inside to create various hand positions using their full body.
  • The total video projection surface in the show is more than 5,300 square feet, larger than a basketball court.
