Shadow Show Captivates at Responsible Business Awards

Shadow Show Captivates at Responsible Business Awards

28/07/17

Scarlett Entertainment and Events were thrilled to be asked to provide the award ceremony entertainment for the Responsible Business Awards, which were held at The Royal Albert Hall in London on 4th July. 

The entertainment agency were asked for creative awards ceremony ideas by the client who wanted something that would really leave guests with a lasting impression of the evening. Entertainment Coordinator Liz Blackford proposed and booked a Custom Shadow Show and String Quartet to perform throughout the evening. 

12 shadow shows of varying lengths were custom created for the evening following a storyline that encapsulated the theme of the Responsible Business Awards: generating awareness of climate change and employing sustainable practises to create a more sustainable future and a fairer society.

Two 60-second shows opened and closed the awards ceremony, whilst nine 30-second mini shadow shows were performed at points throughout the evening. These were particularly effective, the clients said that: ‘so many [guests] said they found themselves waiting for the next award tableau each time, that they were ‘spellbinding’, that the evening flew past as a result.

It was almost commented that: ’The tableaux for each category worked so well and created such a beautiful theme for the evening.

A longer 7.5 minute shadow show was performed accompanied by a live narration. A live choreographed dance set to a soundtrack provided by a live string quartet was performed at either end of the show. This performance formed the Climate Change piece at the middle of the event and the client fed back that it was ‘absolutely enchanting’.

As well as providing the soundtrack for the shadow show, the string quartet also performed for two hours throughout the evening providing elegant background music whilst guests enjoyed their meals and drinks.

The whole event was a huge success and the client praised Liz and the performing artists for ‘…creating such a magical evening last night… I am so grateful to all of the team for their creativity, inspiration and performance. The whole thing seemed particularly suited to the venue and worked so well, creating just the right balance between  entertainment and information.’
