At ExMachina we even put flames in motion! Playing with fire on stage is a sensible subject, especially when flames move vertically above performers.
Here we faced additional challenges, as the elements were quite unstable by nature, with a minimum rolling base of 18cm height, rolling on a 4% inclined stage. We had to get creative.
Flying large objects along non-purely vertical trajectories raised unusual questions.
When a 10 meter high structure must be rolling on stage, stability must be studied carefully.
As the area below that platform was very busy, the pillars had to be as thin as possible, and no visible bracing was possible.
We all know the challenges of a revolving platform, but with this project, we developed a full range of use-cases.
