- La Perle by Dragone at Al Habtoor City
Your mind cannot begin to describe the La Perle live performance. Franco Dragone, a creative director for Cirque du Soleil and other well-known shows worldwide, is credited with creating this masterpiece. The captivating production La Perle’s plot centres on a fisherwoman’s fanciful search for a lost pearl around the United Arab Emirates.
Purchasing La Perle tickets is a requirement whether you are an ex-pat living in the UAE or a visitor. With scenes of beautiful projections, epic choreography, breathtaking aerial acrobatics, amazing motorcycle feats, and stunning diving stunts, you will undoubtedly feel as though you have been taken to another planet and a dream.
The show’s setting, La Perle Al Habtoor City, is the icing on the cake. It is not your typical theatre in the United Arab Emirates; it is a specially designed space with a cutting-edge stage that fills with water and empties in the blink of an eye, showcasing the unique fusion of art, dance, and water that defines Franco Dragone’s style.
You can have a once-in-a-lifetime experience at La Perle Aqua Theatre Show.
- Artist Talk with Jalal Luqman
Art has advanced more quickly than ever before in our fast-paced environment. However, no other creative form has altered and progressed as quickly as digital art.
Digital art has evolved and adapted to every vehicle, medium, and screen since it relies heavily on technology to reach and touch us wherever we may be.
Because of its close connection to technology, this art form is more resistant to changes in that field. Digital art has invaded our lives in education, medicine, and entertainment since mathematician Ben Laposky first used it in 1952. It is an ever-evolving medium that will remain.
