We’re in Istanbul for a weeks run of performances in the ‘Illuminaire’ Phoenix production.

The 2000 seater theatre is looking great and the city is splashed with billboards advertising the show, which features artists from across europe.

Our hotel overlooks the Bosphorus, watching the sun rise over the Istanbul straight dividing the European and Asian continents, it’s a great place to bridge our past 2 years work in Asia and celebrate our new focus on Europe.

It’s a fascinating city, throbbing with the pulse of 14 million people, gleaming scrapers rising out of neighborhoods with 600 year old spice bazaar’s.

The city is rapidly growing and the event entertainment market seems poised to embrace the next level of corporate quality acts and cirque style shows.

Our local connection speaks of the modernization of Istanbul’s conference and business sector outpacing even the cities rapid population growth in recent years, with the development of the events services industry expanding fast to cater to the new wave of Turkish entertainment requirements, product launches and exclusive private functions.

Dress rehearsals and media previews are under way and the performers and crew are getting ready to rock with a fiery pyrotechnics and circus extravaganza premiere tomorrow night.
