Bringing Nemo's underwater world to life in a creative spectacle of colour, audiences will be submerged in a comical adventure with Dory, Marlin and Nemo.
The innovative new production of Disney On Ice presents Disney/Pixar's Finding Nemo plunges audiences into the amazing underwater world of "lucky"-finned clownfish Nemo, his overprotective father Marlin and cheerfully optimistic Dory.
This animated world "down under" comes to life in a brilliant rainbow of color, set to an energetic musical score. Gliding smoothly across the ice, skaters costumed in many forms of ocean life perfectly emulate the natural flow of fish through water. A digital projection screen combines with aquatic lighting to create the depth and vastness of the ocean that envelops the audience.
"In this show, we create a living sea on the ice in such a way that audiences will feel as if they are actually underwater," says Producer Kenneth Feld. "We combine digital projection, choreography and the most unbelievable costumes ever seen, and the result is a visual masterpiece that will truly transform the ice surface and take audiences through the ocean and into the aquarium."
"Overall, the audience is going to feel like they are a part of the story - a part of the fun, friendship and adventure," says Director Patty Vincent. "From start to finish, we have developed a show whose every element will fuse to draw audiences into the beloved world that Disney and Pixar showcased in their blockbuster film. At the end, each audience member will really feel as if they have been dipped into the water."
The adventure begins when the arena transforms into an aquatic paradise - complete with brightly colored coral reefs and fish of all sizes swimming among the coral. Lighting Designer Peter Morse establishes the feel of the ocean by washing the ice with ultraviolet light and patterns to reflect the dimensionality of the water.
With the captivating combination of digital projection and lighting, set, costumes and choreography, audiences will be visually submersed under the water to become a part of the aquatic adventure in this dynamic debut. As father and son go on a comical escapade to reunite, the Academy Award®-winning film takes to the ice in a breathtaking three-dimensional display of color, laughter and ocean-sized fun.
