A brand new show from award-winning and world-renowned bubble whizz, Pep Bou
SINGAPORE, 12th MAY: Adding to the array of shows on offer this year is Bubble Magic – Pep Bou’s Wonderful World of Bubbles- a brand new show from the award-winning and world-renowned bubble whizz, Pep Bou. Bubble Magic will be performed for the first time in Singapore at the Raffles Hotel, from 9th to 14th September 2014. Tickets on sale now.
Direct from a Europe-wide tour, the joyful two-man show combines the fleeting beauty of bubbles with clowning, ingenious lighting, colourful music and crazy costumes. The two turn everyday elements into a magical, wonder-filled world. They compete, collaborate and surprise us, with fishbowl bubbles, animal bubbles, bubbles on a high wire, sliding bubbles, puppet bubbles and even a train inside a bubble tunnel.
Designed to ignite the imagination, Bubble Magic is a bubble show with a difference, transporting the audience to a fantasy-land of beautiful illusions, skilful trickery and a plethora of gags, instilling a sense of childish wonder in people of all ages. The show is a blend of visual poetry and sheer fun in equal measure.
On a deeper level, Bubble Magic explores the change of perspective people experience when they start to work together instead of living life in isolation. The two characters meet in a strange unfamiliar world, living in fear of the unknown. But soon, working with the daily elements of reality: water, soap, tubes, circles and smoke machines, they begin to appreciate the beauty of everything around them and change their outlook towards each other and life. They become aware of their ability to transform reality and the benefits of working with other people.
The show has been created and directed by the master of bubbles, Pep Bou. The Spanish-born artiste has been playing with bubbles for more than three decades, an adventure that has taken him onto the stages of theatres and festivals around the world, delighting audiences of all ages and cultures. He has been honoured with an array of prestigious awards.
Pep Bou started his theatrical career as a mime artist in the mid 70s before combining his passion for chemistry – he has a degree in the subject – with his passion for the performing arts. The result was Bufaplanetes, his first foray into bubbles in 1982, which went on to win the Special Jury Prize at the Cannes International Festival of Theatre (1986).
Producer and CEO of Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, James Cundall says, “Bubble Magic is an exceptional show. Its creator Pep Bou is world-renowned for good reason – he is simply brilliant, and blends the poetry of bubbles with elements of traditional clowning, transporting you to a different world. We are delighted to be able to present the show at the Jubilee Hall Theatre at Raffles Hotel – it is the perfect intimate venue for a show of this nature, enabling the audience to experience the magic of bubbles up close.”
Wordless and wonderful, Bubble Magic is a 65 minute visual and comic feast for children and adults alike.
