THODW

Longest permanent show in operation

2010 - permanent show

Created by Franco Dragone, 


The show is set in an extraordinary magical kingdom that takes audiences on an awe-inspiring and emotional journey. The show incorporates mesmerizing special effects, dazzling costumes and visual treats with the most breathtaking acrobatics, artistic and aerial performances. The House of Dancing Water has received rave reviews by audiences and critics alike and has been hailed as one of the most imaginative theatrical extravaganzas ever produced


David Wirtgen has been very much involved with the project from the very begining as of 2007 while Research & development were performed then preparing the "training and formation" / rehearsals in Belgium 2008 - 2009.  Involved very closely with Eurocam-Alfacam (today AED Studios) in the construction of one of the biggest Aquatic Studios in the world in order to get all artists and crew to be prepared for creation in the theater.


David Wirtgen was Associate Technical Director during pre-production and creation until opening (2007-2010) then assitant technical director and technical director during operations (2010-2011)
