Every year Cirque Du Soleil produces a show for the Andorra tourist board. Scalada Storia is the 3rd edition of the event that Dushow Spain, have worked together with 45 Degrees, the special event division of Cirque Du Soleil to produce.

The idea is to promote Andorra as a summer destination with a special 60 minute show. With over 60 performances over the past 3 summers, to a 5000+ sellout crowd it’s easy to appreciate the success of the project so far.

Every year the main central parking area of the Parc Central, in the centre of Andorra la Vella, is commandeered and a performance area constructed to ‘house’ the show. With a 5000+ capacity the show takes centre stage so to speak in the majestic terrain of Andorra. It is an open air event that is free and unique in Europe.

This year, from 4th July to August 1st, there were 5 shows running per week (Tues – Sat). A new Hippotizer Boreal was purchased for use on these shows, running the latest V4 Beta software. The video concept was to have video capable tubes outlining performance cubes which we’re part of a central stage structure. The Hippotizer was then used to generate effects and output content which would work together with the lighting and add an extra dimension to the show.

Scalada Storia, is a new performance that shows the country’s more mystic side and takes the audience on an acrobatic and metaphorical journey to the legends of Andorra.
