“Mundo de Noel”, christmas was reborn in São Paulo!
At the end of 2017, “Ibirapuera” Arena was taken over by the magic of Christmas with the Noel's World project, a space prepared to rescue the Christmas traditions that offered attractions for children and adults. Realized and produced by DC Set, Noel World happened between November 23rd and December 25th. "Noel's World was created to make the city of São Paulo the true Christmas capital. It was one of the great achievements of DC Set," says director Walther Neto. The project featured the musical Finding Noel, with the participation of actress Maria Paula, with lots of dance, special effects, interaction with the public and circus artists that led the audience to a fantastic adventure to rescue of the true Santa Claus.
"The show was based on a theatrical tradition that mixes national techniques with creative freedom that surrounds sound effects, projections and circus shows that have led children and adults into a fantasy world," adds Neto. Inspired by Christmas tales on a modern language, the musical had 30 artists in the cast and told the story of a Santa Claus who is saddened by being forgotten and the fact that people do not care about the true meaning of Christmas. Santa's story intersects with the story of the character Ana, who struggles to overcome the sorrows of the past and cease with the conflicts in her relationship with Maria, her 10-year-old daughter, who discredits about Christmas. A beautiful and exciting story that made the audience thrill during the performance.
But the show didn’t just happen in the Arena. On the outside a vast schedule. The Elf Chorus, the Santa Claus Parade in allegorical car accompanied by his helpers, Noel Space, where the good old man received the children's letters and took pictures with the visitors, Enchanted Forest with actors telling stories, in addition to Noel's jokes which happened at random times between attractions. The magic of the lights turning on the traditional Christmas Tree every night at 8pm. Also in the outside area was a children's cinema aimed at children from 3 to 12 years counting The Noel's Adventures and his helpers Zuzu and Ozzi. The show The Noel's Adventures in 4D made use of stereoscopic 4D cinema technology, classic theater language with lots of interaction and special effects in a sensory environment with wind, rain, 5.1 sound, synchronized lights and lots of fun.
