Sarwat Watan

Cirque du Soleil


“Go see it! You will be amazed and enthralled!”



“Go see it! You will be amazed and enthralled!”


Sarwat Watan was an immersive show brought to life in Riyadh for National Day celebrations. The show brings together the earth, sky and water - leading our characters on a elemental journey.

FRAY worked with a range of creation tools throughout the project such as After Effects, Notch and Unreal to allow the right tool to be chosen for each moment that was created. All of these elements were brought together by a VYV Photon system which allowed for precise control of projection onto challenging surfaces such as voile fabric, moving scenery and water.
