Expo 2017 Astana

The world exhibition EXPO 2017 was held in Astana/Kazakhstan from 10 June to 10 September 2017. A large opening show took place in the newly built Congress Center.

Under the slogan

Future Energy: Action for Global Sustainability

this show was staged spectacularly with the help of Stage Kinetik technology.

3 artist flying systems and 3 carbon tube systems

For this purpose, 2 flying systems on spiral-shaped tracking systems were installed in the hall ceiling to let artists dressed up as astronauts float through the arena. In addition, 3 carbon tube systems with a width of 9 meters were equipped with laserscrims on site to install 3 artist flying systems behind these laserscrims. Hanging on these flying systems, the artists presented various show performances.

300 WinchOne winch systems

A total of 300 WinchOne winch systems from Stage Kinetik were programmed in a variety of shapes to create an atmospheric stage setting, which was then set in color in cooperation with Glow Motion Technologies. Thus, these spheres could be programmed as to “float” as a group or individually according to the requirements in order to present a wide variety of stage sets. The winches had a load capacity of 1 kilogram and could be moved at a speed of 1.2 m/sec.
