Ceremony of Anniversary for German Re-unification

10.10.2017 Tags: The Grand Final on river Rhine

Every year the celebration of the German re-unification is held by a different province. In 2017 it was Rheinland-Pfalz holding this ceremony in the city of Mainz.

The idea of playing the final show on a floating stage on the Rhine river gained the confidence of the State Chancellery. Our PIO team, put all creativity, knowledge and skills together and in cooperation with PoolGroup GmbH and ConceptX GmbH & Co. KG we implemented the grand finale.

The motto of the event “Together we are Germany” was transported through poetry, action and humor and merged together to a perfect show.

The Rhine, border river, link and lifeline became the base to our stage show. Father Rhine a stage platform and special challenge to all of us. The PIO team accepted these obstacles and created a show that set new standards in its versatility and depth.

The result was an impressive stage show, presented in the colors black, red and gold transported on all meta levels.

With acrobatics, water sports highlights, tales and stories, theatre, history, music, dance and outstanding fireworks, PIO not only united the interests of all spectators, but created a harmonious sense of community and unity with the entire audience.

A stage show that visually captivated, touched, opened minds but above all inspired.

“The Grand Finale on the Rhine” – a crowning finale of this year’s celebration of the German Re-unification.

To express the passion that drives us and to make you explore the art of staging, a goal Papilio Entertainment has set for this time’s keynote speech at the “Locations Rhein-Neckar” in the congress centre Rosengarten Mannheim.

The lecture program was initiated and organized by the IECA (International Event & Congress Academy), the in-house training academy of the Mannheim congress GmbH (m:con).

This keynote speech made clear that successful staging is the art to translate visions purposefully with a sense for the entire production while leading your project team successfully. It is a good show when the audience laughs at least once, is touched once and constantly banned.

Experts of the Papilio network train participants of the part-time Event Manager Program several times per year. The training focuses on concept creation, production, direction, creativity communication, drama and rhetoric topics associated with the preparation and implementation of an event. These two-day seminar units are adapted to the individual needs of each participant in order to achieve the greatest learning aspects.
