On 13 June 2016, the GE Africa Innovation Centre opened its doors with a spectacular and sparkling launch event. With a theme of "Where GE and Africa Meet: GE at the Forefront of African Innovation", the 3-storey glass building in Killarney, Johannesburg is unique in its incorporation of both African and innovation features. This video was used as an introduction to the launch event, which was a spectacular fusion of African performance and a high technology laser and light show incorporating the building as a key architectural feature - with Peter Mabeo's delicate, glistening mural entrance canopy forming a backdrop. The performance began with welcome greetings from the amazing Giant Match Puppets and concluded with the beautiful showstopping Jessica Mbangeni - praise poet supreme. Drums by Drumming Campaign and dancers from Moving into Dance. What a fitting tribute to African Innovation. Thank you to the team at Cut2Black.
