Riot Games LEC 2022
For the opening ceremony of the League of Legends European Championship @lecofficial 2022 in Malmö, Battle Royal Studios designed an arena-sized kinetic stage, creative produced a show for a 16-piece orchestra, devised the entry for the 10 players, and staged the singer @cassyette (the voice of the @leagueoflegends season’s anthem “Awakened”).
I acted as show director and show consultant, working closely with the creative teams at Riot Games Germany.
