Follow your dreams and let your inner child take over for a while at B – The Underwater Bubble Show, taking place at the Vilar Performing Arts Center on Friday, April 1 at 6:30 p.m. as part of the venue’s family series. 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 a major twist.
“Each classic tale represents the journey of a child growing up and learning something,” says co-creator and director Enrico Pezzoli. “We wanted a story about an adult character who finds they can still go back and enjoy life. We don’t always have to grow up. Sometimes we have to step back a bit and start over.
The show follows Mr. B, a creature of modern habits who “always feels rushed with a thousand things to do in a world that seems to be moving too fast”. The office worker discovers a small aquarium that magically appears in his briefcase and gradually becomes enchanted by the wonderful underwater world of Bubblelandia, which is full of seahorses, dragon fish, starfish, mermaids and other creatures.
“Mr. B represents each of us. His transformation is a journey each of us could take ‘only if’,” Pezzoli says. “Everyone dreams of the possibilities of taking a break to sit back, relax and just daydream. “
Taking inspiration from Cirque du Soleil, the visually spectacular show incorporates the latest stage technology with lasers, ground smoke and flying foam to simulate waves and the underwater atmosphere.
“After playing in so many countries around the world, we’ve seen adults enjoy the show as much as children, sometimes with even greater reactions,” says Pezzoli.
Sit back, relax, and take a wonderful bubble-filled underwater journey to the Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek with B – The Underwater Bubble Show.
