The Unexpected journey of Mr. B in the colorful underwater world of Bubblelandia
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 in a special, colorful, 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. The “inhabitants” of Bubblelandia – seahorses, dragon fish, starfish, mermaids, clownfish and others – will carry Mr. B along his imaginary journey in this beautiful underwater world where fantasy becomes reality and you are invited to follow him.

You will not need an oxygen tank to breathe; just let your mind run wild, open your heart and relieve the everyday stress! Suddenly millions of bubbles of all shapes and colors, along with the foam of waves and other surprises will immediately swallow and transport you into this parallel universe of joy and freedom.
The plot is very simple and based on our modern everyday life; always too busy, filled with stress increased by the abuse of mobile phones, tablet, PCs and other gadgets that allow us to make a faster connection…causing us to lose connection with reality. How many of us have ever wanted, at least for a moment, to be able to stop time just to take a breath and daydream? The solution, in fact, is simple and accessible to us all: don’t be afraid to let yourself go.
“B” the show was produced with the help and support of the biggest authorities in the field of entertainment and theatre in Latvia. 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 visual impact of the show is further enhanced by the original music of Valdis Zilvers (the most famous Latvian composer of soundtracks for theatre plays), the costumes specially designed by E.Patmalniece (popular fashion designer and main costume designer of the Latvian National Opera) and the artistic makeup created by Marita Gaidele ( main make-up artist of LNT Latvian Television).
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. The performance is enriched by a live video shooting connected to a large LED screen (35 sq. meters – 380 sq. Feet) that acts as a background and allows for better visibility even in the largest of auditoriums (“B” has been performed in theatres with over 3000 seats).
Adults and children alike will enjoy the show, thanks to the high interactivity and audience participation, the extremely visual content (there are no spoken words as all the show is musical) and the different levels of interpretations that will make adults to think and children to smile.
“B” is a visual, musical, emotional and lavish show that transports people in an imaginary underwater world with a real feeling of being submersed in the ocean deep.” –Translated from …. Latvian press
