Another Production Award for Clusters of Light

Multiple International and Sharjah Media Centre have picked up the award for Best Lighting Design at the Middle East Event Production Awards.
Multiple International and Sharjah Media Centre have picked up the award for Best Lighting Design at the Middle East Event Production Awards, which were announced at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai.

The award honoured the partners’ production of Clusters Of Light, a highly ambitious musical extravaganza that recounts the life of the Prophet Muhammud.

The production was also shortlisted for Best Music Event, Best Cultural Event, and several onlookers and industry commentators expressed surprise that it was edged out of the winner’s slot by a one-off rap concert.

Clusters Of Light, which was staged for five nights in Spring 2014, was commissioned by Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, the Ruler of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates.

Staged in a specially designed, purpose built amphitheatre in Sharjah, it celebrated the emirate’s recognition as Islamic Capital of Culture for 2014.
The award was especially remarkable as the partners had only six months from brief to curtain-up to deliver the highly ambitious multimedia event, which wove together live performance, cinematic visuals and some stunning special effects.

In every aspect from initial concept to choreography, theatrical direction, special effects and costume design, Clusters Of Light brought together top talents from the Middle East, Europe and beyond. As an example of its meticulous attention to detail, the show’s battle scenes were enacted by a troupe of Lebanese martial arts experts who were flown in from Australia.

“This is truly a game changer for the industry,” said Wassim Rizk, managing partner of Multiple International. “Our aim is to set a new standard for theatrical production in the region.”

Multiple International aims to fulfill Rizk’s vision with a series of unique, spectacular productions that are currently at an advanced point in the planning stage and expected to come to fruition in the near future.
