TED'16 DREAM: Opening Night
 Chris Anderson
Speakers: Astro Teller, Riccardo Sabatini, AR Rahman, Shonda Rhimes, Bill T. Jones, Dan Pallotta, Ishita Katyal

For the first time ever in cinemas, the general public will have the opportunity to experience the “opening night” of TED’s legendary annual conference, alongside its equally legendary VIP audience. The event will take place on February 15th in Vancouver, Canada and will be captured live for Australian audiences to experience on March 2nd.

Hosted by TED’s curator Chris Anderson, the theatrical screening of this event will feature world-renowned thinkers, artists and storytellers who will share their “ideas worth spreading” about the greatest dreams we are capable of dreaming. What emerges is a spirit of wonder and optimism that represents the world at its best.

While TED holds specific details in confidentiality until shortly prior to the event each year, we expect a dramatic musical act will set the event in motion before Chris Anderson takes the stage with opening remarks, which build a thrilling sense of anticipation and conclude with his hallmark declaration: “It’s time for TED!” At that point, TED will premiere its inventive 2016 “opening titles” video - typically produced by a world-class design house renowned for creating the dazzling motion graphics in blockbuster Hollywood films.

From there, the heart of the program begins with a succession of extraordinary speakers - drawn from artists, inventors, adventurers, global leaders, and visionaries - who will deliver the “talk” of their lives in the world-famous TED 18-minute format. Impromptu on-stage interviews and imaginative short films will be interspersed throughout the program, which typically concludes with a second spectacular artistic performance.
