AFCON CAMEROON 2021
Opening and Closing Ceremonies – Yaoundé, Cameroon
Organize two live shows at the height of the biggest international sporting events, including hundreds of performers and in the particular context of the pandemic.
Highly colorful, our two ceremonies presented the diversity that makes Cameroon unique and we added for each of them innovative creative solutions never seen before in Africa.
Opening brought together more than 800 Cameroonian artists, dancers, and performers who delivered an impressive show featuring local heritage and traditions.
The ground was covered with huge colorful fabrics with dancers dressed in iconic traditional outfits and staging the 4 major cultural areas of the country, sublimated by several pyrotechnic effects and an original musical composition.
We developed and gave life to a giant Lion, symbol of Cameroon, in augmented reality. It appeared on the roof of the stadium and jumped on the playground to introduce the ceremony, move around the performers and act as real MC of the show. The use of this unprecedented technology in African events was broadcasted on the stadium giant screens as well as on TV to the viewers’ surprise.
An impressive pyrotechnics show also took place at the end of the inaugural match!
The Closing scenic elements were sublimed by an impressive light show, pyrotechnics effects.
After a preshow from Nomcebo (Jerusalema) and a tribute to Manu Dibango, Cameroonian singers such as James BKS, Salatiel, Daphné or Stanley Enow, performed for their public.
Nova Pixmob technology, both with our performers on the field and with the public in the stands, created an unparalleled synergy.
