Carnaval Del Mundo
WELCOME TO THE CARNIVAL OF THE WORLD
ENTER INTO A FEAST FOR YOUR EYES AND IMAGINATION

Soldier and PrincessThere are few events which can equally capture the attention of both adults and children. Carnaval del Mundo is riveting from the first bright peel of the heralds’ trumpets to the sweetly comical romp of puppies who tumble out into the audience at the end. Adaptable to both large arenas and intimate settings, the show is a continuous series of surprise and spectacle.. An adult version of the show, “Carnivalle”, is perfect for evening theater:

DSCN1368_2Carnaval del Mundo is a self-contained production. We bring our own lights, sound system and special effects. All we require is 2 electrical outlets near the performance area and 2 hours to set up and tear down the staging. For venues which have their own lighting system, we are always happy to collaborate with technicians and enhance the production. Dan Butterworth brings his own stage which includes a complete lighting system, a sound system capable of projecting to both large and small arenas, and beautifully painted flats and sets. The audience can sit right on the floor around the semicircular stage, or in a more traditional chair styled seating.

IMG_0069ALL OF OUR STAGES ARE MODULAR AND CONSTRUCTED FROM STRONG, LIGHT WEIGHT MATERIALS. THIS ALLOWS FOR EASE IN SET UP AND TRANSPORTATION AND PROVIDES FOR GREAT FLEXIBILITY TO OPTIMIZE OUR PERFORMANCE IN MANY DIVERSE LOCATIONS.
