Created on 2015, “Journey to the Center of the Earth” is the Company’s second staging aimed at a children’s audience. A success both with critics and public, the show has been nominated to the 2015 São Paulo Award of children’s and youth theatre in the following categories: Best Original Soundtrack, Best Actor and Best Play.
 
The adaptation of the homonymous book is told by three actors who, in order to breathe life into Jules Verne’s ideas, use acrobatic techniques, physical drama and manipulation of puppets and objects. The staging also features live video projection resources, in order to capture and project backstage shapes and actions crafted by the actors and robots which are part of the setting of this adventure. Five cameras spread throughout the stage bring fantastic dimensions and perspectives to the episodes of this story.
 
The combination of the visual elements, added to the handling of wood parts, provide for a constant transformation of the theatrical setting, composing transportation, caves and other surprise that engage the audience into unraveling a world within Earth, filled with danger, emotion and adventure.
 
Journey to the Center of the Earth is a tale about bravery and overcoming difficulties, an intriguing and fun journey verging existentialism, since the underground has always been full of mystery to mankind.
