LarMac LIVE (LML) produced the star-studded Our Greatest Team Rises Team GB and ParalympicsGB gala fundraising event at the Royal Albert Hall, London.

LarMac LIVE were contracted by Team GB/ParalympicsGB and worked in unison with Fireball, which co-ordinated all the night’s fundraising and front of house operations.

LarMac’s Jo MacKay, creative producer, took care of the show’s creative aspects which included originating a production design to set the look and feel of the stage, and scheduling the artist performance running order. Ian Greenway, producer, oversaw the general technical production, and LML brought in Maggie Mouzakitis to specifically co-ordinate all the technical sub-contractors, which included Blackout, Britannia Row, OgleHog, Music Bank, HSL and Stage Miracles.

LML worked creatively with the Allstars Collective to facilitate musical performances for a key event sponsor, and for the first live performance of the official Our Greatest Team song “One Vision” with Alfie Boe, Kimberly Walsh and the Youth Music Voices.

MacKay’s stage design divided the performance space into three interchangeable sections, delineated by moving screens and drapes. The idea was to make the area as dynamic as possible so it matched the stage action, a goal achieved using a Kinesys automation system to give the show a series of rises in keeping with the  Our Greatest Team Rises theme.

MacKay used the red white and blue Our Greatest Team colour theme for the event, and briefed production lighting designer Andy Hurst on the evening’s requirements.
