Ministry of Tourism, Banco do Brasil present and sponsor and Livelo co-sponsors the webseries
Adapted from the theatrical show Mist, the web series has four episodes, with production of Rubim Productions, text of Sérgio Roveri, adaptation of the text for Clarissa Campolina, direction of Yara de Novaes and Clarissa Campolina and cast formed by Leonardo Fernandes and Fafá Rennó
Debut in 5 February “Farol de Neblina”, four-episode web series adapted from the theatrical show Neblina, presented at the Banco do Brasil Cultural Center in Belo Horizonte in the months of January and February 2020. The forecast was for circular assembly in other Brazilian capitals – CCBB São Paulo, CCBB Rio de Janeiro and CCBB Brasília – but the seasons were postponed due to the pandemic, and, now, arrives in a new format.
The original project is designed by Leonardo Fernandes and Tatyana Rubim. Yara de Novaes signs the direction of the play and, on the webseries, filmmaker Clarissa Campolina joins her. The director of photography is the award-winning director Wilssa Esser. The unpublished text written by Sérgio Roveri was adapted for the series, for him and the filmmaker Clarissa Campolina, in a collective creation between the author, Yara, Clarissa e Tatyana. André Cortez is responsible for the original scenario and new elements were added by the directors. DR Morris is responsible for the original score and also signs a new score for the series. Actress Fafá Rennó shares the scene with Leonardo Fernandes, as in the original show.
“We had a complete restructuring. We started from a theatrical show to a webseries and looked for cinema aesthetics and resources to make this new work. We maintain the central line, an event that guides the narrative, but, technically, the time is different, the CARACTERISTICS, the team and structure are from the audiovisual. The language, light, cortes, trail, direction and photography are from cinema. Actors Leonardo Fernandes and Fafá Rennó bring the important experience of acting in cinema, which gives us even more and gives us the security of a team completely aligned with the cinematic language. The format was designed to be viewed online, with the duration and triggers designed to capture the attention of the spectators ”, explains Tatyana Rubim.
The roadmap for "Foglamp" combines elements of suspense and psychological thriller and shows the mysterious meeting of a couple, Diego (Leonardo Fernandes) and Sofia (Fafá Rennó), in a house without neighbors over a cold and foggy night. Confined in this harsh environment, the characters indulge in a strange exercise of empathy and provocation that has everything to move towards an outcome that can be both tragic and revealing.
As the night progresses, Diego and Sofia agree to report some facts of their lives, but that are nothing but crumbs, insufficient for the public to compose a profile of the characters that comes close to reality.
The webseries has free access by withdrawing tickets on the website www.espetaculoneblina.com.br, from 5 February to March 1, 2021. Premiere of episodes days 5/2, 12/2, 19/2 and 26/2 – Friday, Saturday, Monday, at 8:00 pm and Sunday, 19h. Available to be assisted until 30 June 2021, always in these days and times. Each episode averages 18 minutes.
“Farol de Neblina” is presented by the Ministry of Tourism, Banco do Brasil presents and sponsors and Livelo co-sponsors the webseries, with resources from the Federal Culture Incentive Law, of the Special Secretariat for Culture of the Ministry of Tourism.
From theater to webseries
According to the author of the text, Sérgio Roveri, the adaptation of the play for webseries helps to show the various possibilities of the script. “The series format enriched the story with cinematographic resources that include external scenes, flashback strings, images of actors and technicians behind the scenes of the theater and an agile narrative, that values all the elements of suspense present in the plot. It's much more than a filmed show, it is a product that brings together the most powerful that theater and cinema have to offer in favor of a narrative ”, says Roveri.
Director Yara de Novaes says that the transposition of Neblina to the audiovisual was organic, also taking into account the theme of the show, that has a lot of the reality that we have lived today, in this pandemic period. “It is this apprehension because of something that got in our way and compromised everything that we had imagined that our future would be. Which gives us the certainty that we only have this gift. This moment that we are dealing with so many losses, and that life and death mean the same thing. And we have a feeling that everything continues, anyway. But it is a time when we, as well as the characters from “Farol de Neblina”, we have been trying to find ways to resist and to live a little better ”.
Yara says that the arrival of artist and filmmaker Clarissa Campolina contributed to the adaptation taking place naturally. “Together with Sérgio Roveri we started to adapt the script for the web series and we realized how we could actually make the cinema somehow increase all the wishes we had at Neblina theater and that we were unable to put on stage. So, the cinema brought some thoughts that we had in the play process ”. She says that “Farol de Neblina” also brings other aspects of these characters, in an intrinsic connection with what we've been experiencing. “But always thinking in a very hopeful way, as it was in the show, knowing that there, activate, an outlet for suffering, it's possible".
Clarissa Campolina confesses that she had not seen the play and was happy to see Yara de Novaes again, with whom I had already worked 18 years. “We have a friendly relationship. It was a joy to receive this invitation. Sérgio's text has many subtleties and nuances in the characters and in the construction of the story itself. There is a very strong metalinguistic game. So, the adaptation for the web in these terms was very interesting because we were gaining other layers that bring this metalinguistic strength. Now, streaky for another time, this one that we are living, providing other senses as well. My effort and work was to see the recorded piece, read the text, talk to everyone involved, thinking about intentions and trying to make a transcreation for webseries. This has been very intense and interesting ”, says the director.
In addition to watching the episodes, the public, from 12 years, he is also invited to check online conversations with the actors and technical team of the web series about the project development process. Online meetings are scheduled on the 1st, 08, 15 and 22 February and March 1, 2021, Mondays, at 8:0 pm, immediately after the unprecedented episode session. Transmission is through the website www.espetaculoneblina.com.br.
The premiere, on February 1st, is with the “Chat Chat for the Webseries Farol de Neblina”, with Fafá Rennó and Leonardo Fernandes. The actors talk about fog, the challenges of transposition online and answer questions previously sent by viewers.

Historical – Fog text and montage
The intention to mount the show “Neblina” came from actor Leonardo Fernandes, known for important roles in theater and cinema, being the first actor from Minas Gerais, in 60 years, to receive the APCA award for best actor (2017), of the São Paulo Association of Art Critics, hair only "Puppy Buried Alive". In 2018, he invited Sérgio Roveri (Shell award for best author for “Spread the wings over us”) to write the text, starting with just one image that he had in mind and that he showed the author how it could happen.
“Sérgio had already seen me and I. We are friends and we wanted to work together. I showed the scene in his living room. He saw it and said he already knew what to do. And, after a few weeks, he already sent me the first scene ”. Roveri says he wrote the whole play in three weeks. “When he asked me for the text, I was free to think about anything, but trying to obey that one image that Leo gave me, that is from a car accident. When I started the story I didn't know where it would go, I had this first image of a woman (Sofia) banging on a guy's house, at dawn. It's him (Diego) afraid to open the door, for living in a remote house, and because it is almost midnight and there is a lot of fog ”, account.
With text in hands, Leonardo Fernandes invited Eliatrice Gischewski, who had already done the body preparation in the play “Cachorro buried alive” and did the preparation and direction assistance of “Sonho das pearls”, text by Sérgio Roveri directed by Leonardo and which ended up premiering before “Neblina”, in 2019. After, he and cultural producer Tatyana Rubim met again (had already worked together on “Horácio”) to raise funds and assemble the team to take the show to the stage. And the team was carefully formed, by trusted and recognized professionals on the scene.
“I have been working with André Cortez for a long time, I had already worked with DR Morris, in Saltimbancos. And I had a dream of working with Yara, she directing some production that we did. Leo and I talked about our desire to have her with us. Yara is an amazing professional, as an actress and as a director, with unmatched sensitivity. And what she does inside the rehearsal room is a poetic treatise. She takes a text, the ideas, the pains, the loves, the references and, with mastery, go drawing each scene, building each character ”, remembers Tatyana.
Yara comments that she welcomed the invitation to join the “Neblina” team. “Leo and Taty are people I have met at some point in my life, either professionally or as a spectator, and we always had a desire to work together. I've worked at Tati at times and all the little meetings we had were very happy. I always wanted to act with Leo or direct him. Together, we invite Fafá Rennó, actress that I've directed in SP. There are two actors, in rehearsal, for many times, I watch what they do and what they create. They are actors with a lot of presence, with lots of resources and a lot of skill ”.
Tatyana Rubim says that, after the desire to work again with actor Leonardo Fernandes, what attracted her to the project was the text. “That because“ Fog ”talks about loss, of grief and the way of overcoming that they found to sublimate this pain, caused me a lot of curiosity. I was also touched by the human capacity to transform in the face of trauma. It is a very important issue to be addressed to people. Which family does not go through a trauma? And my expectation is to really bring a legal reflection to the public ”, adianta Tatyana.
