Nomination Title: GAPinsaat & TemaCC & Filmmaster Events, Turkmenbashi International Seaport Inaugration Show

The date on which this nominated production was first presented: This nominated production was one-time show. It presented on 2nd of May 2018, Turkmenbashi / Turkmenistan for the Opening Ceremony of Turkmenbashi International Seaport.

Briefly describe the nominated event's objectives and how it met those objectives (up to 525 words):

It’s an artistic performance inspired by the book “TURKMENISTAN HEART OF THE GREAT SILK ROAD”, written by the President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow.

This 20 minutes long show objectives are;

The importance of the the Turkmenbashi International Seaport completion, as part of a huge global plan of logistic infrastructures, known as the “Great Silk Road”.

A project that empowers Turkmenistan as a strategic transit country, accelerating the speed of global connections, and developing a huge network of economic relations. At the same time, this new branch of the Great Silk Road fulfils the historical role of Turkmenistan as the true heart of this ancient route. A route that has linked together for centuries people all around the world and many countries from China to Europe, making it not only a road of trade, but also a road of friendship and human relationship. Turkmenistan has always welcomed travellers with a smile, showing hospitality to them and exchanging cultural elements, as the National heritage and all the ancient treasures of the country fully demonstrate.

We met the objectives, explained above by dividing the performance into 4 acts, and unfolds as a “crescendo” of spectacular elements , turning the entire location into an immersive virtual scene that embraces spectators with video animations and effects.


Two merchants meet on the ancient Silk Road route. One of them explains the great strategic importance of this land and the wealth of cultural treasures they are going to encounter along the journey.

As the journey of the two merchants continues, they are joined by caravans in the desert, discover glorious ancient cities that have flourished all across the country, and admire the beauty of centuries-old traditions that are still part of the National identity today. This act also mentions the legends that have flourished along the road, and that witness centuries of cultural exchanges with many different parts of the world. A traditional Kushtdepdi dance performance marks the end of the act, introducing the new Great Silk Road era and the reveal of the Turkmenbashi International Seaport.

A tribute to the progressive spirit of Turkmenistan, forging its future through strategic development, neutrality and international collaboration. It’s a moment of pride and emotion, as children symbolising the future accompany the audience towards the newly completed logistics complex, unveiling the Turkmenbashi International Seaport in a spectacular flight through. Now the Caspian Sea has become a sea of peace, a sea of collaboration.

The new era unfolds, as we are witnessing to the many benefits and growth opportunities the Turkmenbashi International Seaport offers to the country and to the rest of the world. A world that is now more inter-connected, where countries are joining forces on the Great Silk Road project, making international cooperation possible at all levels. Today the new Great Silk Road is established as a peace, friendship road for all humanity, while Turkmenistan goes ahead with confidence at a horse speed, proudly standing in front of its future.
