Russia – “Breaking The Ice“: Sochi 2014 Paralympic Opening Ceremony with the Creative Direction and Executive Production of Balich Worldwide Shows.

This celebration exalted the Russian spirit, particularly its inclination to break down assumptions and stereotypes by uniting everyday people from two different continents. Literature, music, dance and spectacular visual effects accompanied the performance of disabled Artists among an extraordinary cast of all ages and backgrounds. The Sochi 2014 Paralympic Opening Ceremony culminated with the entrance into the stadium of an icebreaker named “Peace”, succeeded by a stunning ice show, which embodied the power of communication and opened the perspective of a peaceful humanity.
