After another long day, as always filled with things to do, meetings, deadlines to be met, Mr. B finds himself transported as if by magic to a special, colorful, and happy place called Bubblelandia. Bubblelandia is a place in which to linger, to dream, to listen, to watch, to savor, and to marvel but, above all a place to daydream. B—The Underwater Bubble Show is a Cirque-style modern fairy tale about the journey of aan adult who learns that he can still go back and find joy in life. Simple, silent storytelling is coupled with spectacular special effects and amazing performers to transport all audiences to magical place where fantasy becomes reality.
Inspired by childhood standards like Alice in Wonderland, The Little Mermaid and Peter Pan, B-The Underwater Bubble Show is a story with one major twist “We wanted a story about an adult character who discovers that he can still go back and enjoy life. We don’t always need to grow up. Sometimes we need to step backwards for a bit and restart." explains co-creator and director Enrico Pezzoli.
Mr. B is a creature of modern habits who “always feels pressed by a thousand things to do in a world that seems to be moving too fast." One day he discovers a little aquarium that appears like magic inside his briefcase and gradually becomes nchanted by the wondrous underwater world of Bubblelandia, which is full of seahorses, dragon fish, starfish, mermaids and other creatures. “Mr. B represents each of us,” Pezzoli notes. “His transformation is a journey which each of us could take 'only if'...everyone dreams about the possibilities of taking a break to sit, relax and simply daydream.”
Taking cues from Cirque du Soleil, the visually spectacular show incorporates the latest in stage technology. Lasers, low ground smoke and flying foam simulate waves and the underwater atmosphere. A juggler in a huge plastic ball is the performer that immediately attracts Mr. B and the audience into Bubblelandia’s wondrous world, while dancers and acrobats serve as “small colorful fish chasing Mr. B and each other inside the aquarium. It’s a magical circus spectacular that adults, as well as children will love.Artist Website Video Photos
