A Declaration of Love to Life: VIVID Grand Show Celebrates its World Premiere at Friedrichstadt-Palast in Berlin

Del

A tremendous blaze of colour at the Friedrichstadt-Palast, which has been sold out for weeks now: around 2,000 guests, including Lady Kitty Spencer and Barbara Eden, celebrated the dazzling World Premiere of the VIVID Grand Show. Philip Treacy, the world’s most famous milliner, designed avant-garde creations for the most lavish show in Europe. The production budget is the biggest yet, totalling €12 million.

The new VIVID Grand Show is a declaration of love to life and surprises with exuberant sensory impressions. For the first time in the Palast’s 99-year history, a woman is responsible for writing and directing the Grand Show. Canadian Krista Monson lives in Las Vegas where she was instrumental in the long-running success of the Cirque du Soleil show ‘O’ as Artistic Director: “VIVID features futuristic elements, but also remains close to reality. Many people experience that life can change in just a split second.”

After Christian Lacroix, Thierry Mugler and Jean Paul Gaultier, the Palast’s General Director and Producer Dr. Berndt Schmidt has now commissioned the talented headpiece designer Philip Treacy as Design Director and Costume Supervisor. Treacy raves: “VIVID is the most exciting project I’ve ever been involved in. The Palast gave me the creative freedom to work on ambitious designs and to reinterpret revolutionary headpieces from my career with experienced eyes.” Under the direction of Philip Treacy, the Paris-based fashion designer, illustrator and art director Stefano Canulli is responsible for the extravagant costumes for the world’s biggest theatre stage.

For General Director Dr. Berndt Schmidt, VIVID is also the antithesis to recent developments: “We counteract many of the latest tendencies with a declaration of love to life. As such, VIVID is entertainment at its best. While it does not point any fingers, it also is not apolitical in the contemporary context.” It is not without reason that the headpiece designed by Philip Treacy that features on the show poster dazzles in all colours of the rainbow – it is a clear commitment to respect and diversity.

The show is scheduled to run for at least 12 months.

Lenovo Data Center Group Delivers Broad Edge Computing Portfolio, Expands Investments in IoT22.2.2019 13:13:00Pressemelding

Next week at MWC Barcelona, Lenovo Data Center Group (DCG) will showcase continued investments in its solutions supporting IoT and edge computing as part of its IoT growth plan over the next few years. Building on the momentum of its fifth consecutive quarter of profit growth, Lenovo DCG is building a portfolio that takes infrastructure to where the data is, whether that be in the traditional data center, in the cloud or increasingly, at the edge. Today, around 10 percent of enterprise-generated data is created and processed outside a traditional centralized data center or cloud. By 2022, Gartner predicts this figure will reach 75 percent. This migration is driving increased concerns around data privacy, security and regulations coupled with challenges of latency, bandwidth and downtime. Lenovo is addressing these challenges by creating a broad portfolio of edge computing offerings that address the different ways that customers want to deploy edge computing solutions for IoT use cases.
