EY Innovation Realized 2022
EY approached us to program performances to open their global summit for C-Suite leaders: Innovation Realized. They wanted memorable, unique experiences that embodied the year’s themes: embracing impermanence, realizing bold ambitions, and focusing on relentless execution.
The executive audience was surprised, delighted, and inspired by three performances that mirrored the day’s themes: a reading from Poet Jasmine Mans; a performance from Shimon, a marimba-playing robot that uses AI to collaborate in real time with human musicians; and a show from Manual Cinema, an Emmy award–winning shadow puppetry team.
We also created a short film that played immediately after the performances that introduced the event’s themes more explicitly. The cumulative result was an inspiring, surprising and educational start to the event.
