Description

Lava is much more than just a beautiful tale about cute tiny beings. By means of all sorts of tricks, the audience is open to doubt, suspicion is left behind and an imaginary world opens up. Lava wishes to surprise, and it succeeds in doing so. It is clever, magic and proximity theatre for children from 6 years old onwards.
Inside a small big top, the audience is invited to directly follow the research that a group of geologists is conducting in the subsoil. With the help of a mini-camera that goes down a long pipe, the audience is pulled to the very end of their seat, completely mesmerised. Lava is one of the first shows by the Belgian company Studio Orka. It has been presented at many festivals in Europe and the United States.
