May 2019 | Amsterdam | Westergas
The former Westergasfabriek has a new name and brand identity: Westergas. To celebrate this, they organized the publicly accessible Westergas Feestmenu, the (Re)opening Westergas(Theater) on the 17th of May. All hospitality entrepreneurs on the terrain had a special menu for this day. Besides, there were various workshops for adults and children, expositions, and an audio tour.
For invited guests, there was a cocktail party in the afternoon. During this cocktail party, there was a presentation from Westergas owner Duncan Stutterheim about the plans for the future. Performance art was to be seen in several locations. and a tour was held through the reopened park with golf carts. Last but not least was the official opening of the WestergasTheater with a big party in the evening.
As a technical production partner of Westergas, Backbone was asked for the technical (overlay) design, the technical production of all festivities during the day, and the overlay management.
We were responsible for all technical arrangements that had to be made in the Machinegebouw, Zuiveringshal, Werkkamer, and the WestergasTheater. The overlay management of all before-mentioned buildings and the complete Westerpark was also in our hands. Above all, we oversaw all suppliers and crew involved in the load-in and the load-out, and we were on-site during the entire show for all technical-related matters.
