WELCOME

Thank you to the thousands of people who attended performances of Elemental Force in 2013.

We’re sure you will agree that it was a phenomenal experience, blending performance, film and fire with the history of
some of the East Midlands’ most iconic locations.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter, or visit Déda Producing to find about our future plans.

Elemental Force was a series of free spectacular large-scale outdoor shows which put historic buildings centre stage and use light, sound and film to celebrate the rich heritage of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

Building on the themes that made the Opening Ceremony of London 2012 Olympic Games so memorable, these events will capture the drama and excitement of the region’s past, present and future.

Some of the area’s most significant historic buildings have been chosen as the backdrop for these events. The stories of these sites will be brought to life by some of the country’s leading outdoor artists in a way that audiences have never seen before, using a combination of giant digital projections with stunning visual special effects and pyrotechnics.

Events at Nottingham Castle, Derby Silk Mill and Newark Castle were resounding successes.

The animations and effects were tailored to each location drawing on the tales and sagas associated with the sites – making each show a truly unique experience.

The sites were transformed for the evening with fire and lighting.  Audiences found themselves in a fire garden surrounded by flickering trails and fire-based installations and had the chance to explore their surroundings in anticipation of the main event. On each landmark building a huge projection appeared as the story unfolded through film, music, fireworks and aerial dancers suspended high in the evening sky.

These free events were developed and staged by a team led by Derby based Déda Producing, which has a track record of delivering spectacular outdoor events aimed at audiences of all ages.

  1. I went to the show at Nottingham Castle, really enjoyed it :) Will the score be made available? – there is a small clip on Robin Rimbaud’s soundcloud page, but it would be nice to hear the whole thing, Also enjoyed the really ambient music being played around the fire sculptures. Cheers.

    • Thanks very much, glad you had a great time and the weather didn’t dampen your spirits!!

      If you haven’t already done so, perhaps you wouldn’t mind sharing your views of the event, we’d love to hear your experiences and see any of your pictures or video – and to see what other people have said and seen why not visit our Facebook and pinterest sites and join in the conversation.

      Best wishes,

  3. With the current weather conditions, if there are any spare tickets for Saturday night (2) please let me know. Thanks.

  4. Hi there, sooooo disappointed that the weather has forced cancellation of tonight’s event at Chatsworth, is there any chance that this might be rescheduled?

    • We are also extremely disappointed that we have had to cancel Elemental Force at Chatsworth but we believe that the extreme unseasonable weather has given us no choice. The Producers of the show will now take stock and review what the future options are given the practicalities of the situation. Will keep people posted via the website and twitter.

  5. Hope it will rescheduled …still had a great weekend in Hope Valley …..worth the drive to this wonderful area…..
