Progress on fountain and flames show

Progress on fountain and flames show Image

The consortium behind the Docklands fountain and flame show plans to submit its business case to the State Government this month.

FCT Flames and Avant-Garde de Studio are the team behind the project and estimate the show would generate more than $200 million for the state each year, while bringing five million visitors to Docklands annually.

Since publicly announcing the concept via Docklands News in February, the consortium has been busy briefing government groups, investment groups and businesses.

CEO of FCT Flames David Retallack and director of Avant-Garde de Studio Dr Peter Kok visited Docklands last month to put the finishing touches on the concept.

According to Dr Kok, the Dubai fountains and the Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas have proven to be major tourist attractions and the same would apply to Docklands.

And the project has the wholehearted support of the Docklands Chamber of Commerce.

“As an art exhibition at Docklands, a world-class musical fountain and flame show could not be surpassed,” chamber president Joh Maxwell said.

The concept would see the installation of fountains in Victoria Harbour at the end of Central Pier, which could also be transformed into a floating performance and event stage.

The fountain show could be programmed to music – while flames, pyrotechnics, video projection and lasers could be added at night.
