CPMI believes that ‘Creating Excellence starts Within’.
CPMI is an integrated multi-disciplinary - media family entertainment company as well as a personal / team development company that is in service to create quality memorable experiences that connect to audiences emotions. The look and concept of our shows focus is contemporary in design, ideas, technology, innovation, use of colour, mythology and more – ‘Cirque du Soleil-esque’ style shows.
The intention is to connect the energy of concept and ideas to the energy of the performers, audiences and clients. Connecting energy is what stimulates the emotions and creates a sense of oneness, unity and spirit. This energy is embodied by the belief that creating shows is really about personal development on many levels and the productions the crew, performers and clients/audience are invited to go on this personal journey together.
The purpose of the company to develop, innovate and create performance mastery not only from the entertainment point of view, but also from developing the leadership potential of human beings that perform in entertainment as well as in all work situations, life and play. Therefore, creating holistic performance mastery on many levels.
The philosophy and intention of CPMI is to transport the audience on a discovery journey where every audience member can find something to energetically connect with – whether this be the lights, colourful costumes, story, performers skill, music and more. The primary focus is on the audience and giving them an experience that will resonate with them as they exit the performing venue.
Creative Performance Mastery Interational Pte Ltd is a Singapore incorporated (2012) company owned by Kevin Cottam. Kevin is the creator and performance mastery coach behind the company. He collaborates with other designers, creators and coaches that leads to unique and memorable experiences.
Kevin was figure skater, a dancer and choreographer, which has led him to the unique specialty in large-scale events such as quality Figure Skating Shows and Opening and Closing Ceremonies of Sporting Events. These events integrate performers of other artistic, sport and circus disciplines, incorporate multimedia and collaborate with talented creative designers.
One of the most important developments for the future is to fully build and consolidate the wealth of history, knowledge and expertise of the Kevin and his collaborators. This is in answer to the global desire for holistic and innovative productions catering to family entertainment. The future of CPMI is to expand the creative horizon by integrating more technology as well as a variety of performance disciplines and dramatic forms; mesh classical and contemporary; further discover colours, shapes, forms and lights; explore dramatic and comedy; integrate history and mythology; further stimulate the senses, emotions and touch the souls of their audiences; create different environments as well as being environmental.
CPMI utilizes its strength in performance, is branching out to organizations to develop team building and creative workshops that can stimulate innovation and productivity by thinking out of the box.
Kevin’s belief is that honouring the gifts and voices of creators / performers by creating a professional, safe, harmonious environment, develops an atmosphere of joy, happiness and performance excellence. This is created by our emphasis on personal self-development, leadership and teamwork.
Ultimately, the aim is to connect the energies of each individual to the team itself and then send that energy to the audience. This holistic energy then transforms the production experience and makes it a success.
‘Creating Excellence starts Within’ means – the opportunity for creation and performance starts from inside the seed of an idea and grows and blossoms with the assistance of other systems and, hence, a successful solution magically appears – the Performance of Life.
