MEDIA ADVISORY:

ENTERTAINMENT INNOVATION CONFERENCE
AT UNCSA THIS WEEKEND

Cirque du Soleil and Its Corporate Partners Leading Workshops


WINSTON-SALEM – The School of Design and Production at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) is holding its third annual Entertainment Innovation Conference, today through Saturday (Sept. 8-10).

More than 315 industry professionals – including students and faculty members of university theatre departments across the country – are attending this year’s Entertainment Innovation Conference, which was formerly known as the Southeast Regional Entertainment Technology Conference.

Cirque du Soleil and its corporate partners are leading workshops at the conference covering the use of the cutting-edge technologies in Cirque du Soleil productions.

The conference highlights the unique, extensive, and carefully orchestrated technological requirements that go into a Cirque du Soleil production. It is a rare opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at Cirque du Soleil productions – perhaps some of the most complicated and exciting entertainment experiences being performed today.
