IFEMA has consolidated itself as an exceptional space in Madrid to hold important events that are open to the public. December is no exception, and IFEMA will host three important events, making it the cultural and entertainment epicentre of Madrid.
After the success of Harry Potter, The Exhibition, another great exhibit comes to IFEMA, this time dedicated to the mythical Jurassic Park saga with Jurassic World: The Exhibition. This exhibit’s design will immerse visitors of all ages into scenes inspired by the successful movies. Created in close collaboration with the renowned palaeontologist, Jack Horner, the exhibit features interactive educational activities inspired on real science dedicated to studying dinosaur DNA. Since its première in Melbourne, Australia, in 2016, Jurassic World: The Exhibition has received more than 1.5 million visitors around the world.
Another great show is “33 El Musical”, which will run throughout the month of December in an incredible tent created ad hoc on IFEMA’s facilities. This tent is the largest temporary theatre with the greatest seating capacity ever built in Spain. Directed by Toño Casado, the musical’s author, composer and director, and featuring 28 artists, “33 El Musical” depicts the exceptional story of a man who changed the course of human history with his message of love.
For its part, the circus comes back to IFEMA under a large white tent. IFEMA will host Circlassica until January 6th. The show is an homage to all the circus performers who one day dared to dream and a commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the modern circus. Directed by Emilio Aragón, this show brings together tightrope walkers, trapeze artists and jugglers who, alongside the live orchestra, will take visitors to the magical world of Nim and Margot, “The Circus”.
IFEMA holds three key events headlining Madrid’s cultural and entertainment agenda.
Another key event is the first ever exhibit in Spain dedicated to Banksy. The exhibit, “Banksy, Genius or Vandal?”, will open on December 6th in IFEMA’s Hall 5.1. The exhibit features a wide array of this iconoclastic British artist’s “street art” that has revolutionised today’s art scene despite not knowing who the artist actually is.
The exhibit has been designed to immerse visitors in the mysterious universe created by Banksy, featuring a unique showing of more than 70 original works of art ceded by international private collectors and collaboration with Lilley Fine Art/Contemporary Art Trader Gallery.
Organised by IQ Art Management and Sold Out, “Banksy, Genius or Vandal?” comes to Spain after its unprecedented success in Moscow and Saint Petersburg, attracting more than 500,000 visitors.
