Both of these projects were strategically commissioned as part of The O2’s outside programming to broaden the audience profile of people visiting the London arena.
Afrika Afrika – a modern circus show based in Germany – and Monkey: Journey To The West – a modern eastern opera devised by Damon Albarn, Jamie Hewlett and the UK Chinese Ensemble that came to The O2 from the Royal Opera House – were both performed in tents to the side of the venue’s main arena.
To ensure exquisite operational delivery of these two high-value experiences, the teams worked in close liaison with the promoters of both shows.
