With its theme of ‘Energy of Creation’, the Israel Pavilion at Expo 2017 Astana showed off Israel’s spirit of creativity and innovation as well as the country’s breath-taking variety of entrepreneurs. The pavilion focused on telling the entertaining and fascinating stories of many Israeli companies in the green technology sphere.
The ‘Energy of Creation’ theme was created by the show production company, Avant Video Systems (AVS) because it reflected the essence and the variety of developments and achievements Israel has made in terms of alternative energy. The theme dovetailed well with the broader theme of Astana: ‘Future Energy’, as it showed how the people of Israel are propelling future energy through their knowledge, creative skills and passion. Pico provided fit out and operations services to the pavilion.
The second show was called ‘Energy of Creation’, and was held in the pavilion’s central space. The show featured choreographic interaction between a solo dancer on stage surrounded by the audience, an animation projected on a 6m transparent screen, a video projection on the hall walls and a 1.5 m LED sphere that appeared to be soaring above the stage. The show symbolised ‘the ability of one person to create his own world and transform the energy around them’.
The Israel Pavilion hosted several activities during the expo, including various musical performers who were invited to deliver performances for the entire expo period that reflected the inimitable spirit of Israel. On Israel’s National Day, AvevA, an Israeli band made an appearance which charged visitors with the driving energy of love and freedom; and the world-famous ‘King David Peace Drummers’ performance filled audiences with the exciting energy of drum beats.
