|Renowned pianist and composer Manuel Obregón, artist Carlos Hiller, underwater photographer Simón Bolívar, the technical implementation of LUZ ART and the magic of the Children’s Museum unite to give the public an unrivaled trip through the seabed Costa Rica. The show will immerse the spectators in emblematic places like Isla Murciélago, Isla del Caño, Cabo Blanco, Cahuita, and Puerto Vargas, by approaching them to the wonderful and mysterious underwater world. And best of all: in the Capital city.
Trance Submarino 360 ° is a groundbreaking audiovisual show in Costa Rica, where the spectator will remain seated for an hour that lasts the show, inside a geodesic dome of 260 square meters of round surface (resembling in its shape a planetarium) and whose walls will be projected submarine images in 360º format accompanied by the music of the maestro Manuel Obregón and marine paintings live by the artist Carlos Hiller; generating a 100% sensory experience, a wraparound effect and the almost real sensation of being submerged in the ocean.
“The main objective of the show is to raise awareness about the need to protect marine ecosystems, sensitizing the population on issues such as trawling, the extinction of sharks and the importance of the protected marine territories of our country; all this through a show that offers a unique experience of being submerged underwater, “said the renowned pianist Manuel Obregón.
The show will be presented from Thursday to Sunday on October 19th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, 26th, 27th, 28th, and 29th, at 8:00 pm at the place known as “El Barco“, a new space that now part of the Children’s Museum and has been transformed to host this majestic show. The entrance for the public will be for the third parking lot of the Children’s Museum. The tickets have a general value of ¢ 8,000 and can be purchased online through the website www.museocr.org/boleteria or in the ticket offices of the Children’s Museum.
The quota is limited to 150 people per function with the aim of making the show more enveloping. The project is a pioneer in Costa since it brings together in one place a select group of experts in music, painting, diving and technological implementation, whose common denominator is the love of the oceans and diving. In addition, a large video mapping will be produced for the first time on a round surface, thanks to the technological and production contribution of the company LuzArt.
At the same time, the show contains a series of curiosities. As, for example, the artist Carlos Hiller paints in each function and in vivo a work of art on a round surface and this painting converges with the underwater images projected in great dimensions. Also, the underwater photographer Simon Bolivar performed more than 20 hours of filming in the seas of our country, where he managed to capture unique moments, such as mating two whip streaks during one of the dives.
“My inspiration and passion for the oceans and marine life emerge from the heart. For this project, I spent about 4 months working, where I did about 60 dives in emblematic places of the country like Caño Island, Cabo Blanco, Cahuita National Park and Puerto Vargas, to obtain an approximate 20 hours of recording of the seabed in 360 ° format; from which came the material that the public can enjoy in this majestic spectacle”, said underwater photographer Simón Bolívar, who has more than 20 years of experience as a diver, and has taken him to know marine bottoms of at least 15 countries around the world.
The show seeks to make the viewer fall in love with marine life and realize the importance of protecting and conserving marine ecosystems. At the same time, we want to raise awareness of the important role of oceans and oceans in our lives, which cover three-fourths of the surface of the planet and contain almost 90% of the species we know and are our main source of oxygen, thanks to seaweed.
