In 2014 the DLE team was honoured to collaborate with H.H. Sheikha Lateefa Al Maktoum on a spectacular bespoke wedding design that was inspired by her own artwork.
Sheikha Lateefa’s own creativity and vision provided the artistic license and freedom to explore and create. As a starting point, connections were established between the bride’s own surreal artwork and explorations in sound and live performance. These inspirations were guided by the phenomenon known as the “lucid dream”, whereby the dreamer is aware that they are dreaming.
During the creative process, two-dimensional images and themes from Sheikha Lateefa’s artwork were brought to life and transformed into an immersive multi-sensory, multi-performance experience.
In order to realise this ambitious vision, DLE teamed up with world-class talent from around the globe. The evening’s entertainment was coordinated by Los Angeles director Amy Tinkham and her team. Artist Roger Titley’s three-dimensional magical creatures added an element of wonder. Music was produced by Jean Marie Riachi, performed by the Covent Garden Orchestra and conducted by Pamela Nicholson.
