Inspired by childhood standards like Alice in Wonderland, The Little Mermaid and Peter Pan, B-The Underwater Bubble Show is a modern fairy tale with one major twist. “Each classic tale represents a journey of a kid who grows up and learns something,” explains co-creator and director Enrico Pezzoli. “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.”

The show follows Mr. B, 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.”  The office worker discovers a little aquarium that appears like magic inside his briefcase and gradually becomes enchanted 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.”

Inspired by the famous Canadian troupe “Cirque du Soleil”, the show is rich in various stage effects using the latest laser technologies, snow cannons, soap bubble tornadoes, theatrical fog, gigantic smoke rings, smoke-filled soap bubble machines, optical illusions and many other surprises.

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.  The main character is played by a skillful actor/mime exaggerating his gradual transformation from stressed out modernity to blissed out wonder.  However, the biggest attraction of the show is the spectacular use of soap bubbles in multiple artistic ways.  Creators Pezzoli and bubble artist/spouse Dace Pecoli have toured the world as a duo act for nearly twenty years working with the form, including a performance at the Sochi Olympics.  “l have directed other big performances in the past, but “B” is our first independent big production,” Pezzoli explains.

The well balanced blend of drama, mime, dance, puppetry, juggling, contortionism, sand art and magic, with the amazing beauty of soap bubbles make “B” unique and perfect for any audience.

“The biggest challenge was to make everyone understand that the show is for everyone.  Many people only relate it to kids, but everyone loves bubbles.  After performing in so many countries around the world, we have seen adults enjoying the show as much as kids, sometimes with even bigger reactions,” stated Pezzoli. Developed over two years, The Bubbielandia journey debuted in October 2011 with a pair of shows in Italy that drew in more than 5,000 spectators.  It has since toured major theaters across Switzerland, Kaliningrad, lndonesia, Russia and Lebanon. A revised and enriched version made its UK and UAE debut in 2015 at the Blackpool Tower Circus and the Al Rayyan Theater in Doha, Qatar respectively.  In 2016 the show toured the United State for the first time, selling out nearly 2/3 of their performances over a two-month tour.
