This spectacle based on a simple story suitable for the general public proposes a parade followed by a finale. It is designed so that it can be adapted to requests (specific route, themes to be evoked, etc.). Flexible and extensible, it must be rewritten each time. The spectacle can also be enlarged to include other inflatables depending on the space available or can simply add an event to an existing parade.


Imagine yourself as a diver, immersed in an extraordinary aquarium on your city scale !
A very little pearl escapes from its case and leaves to discover the underwater world... There, she will meet playmates, multicoloured fishes, sea horses, joker squids, bewitched jellyfishes. But she will also meet the terrific sea snake who thinks only of one thing: to swallow her ! Other inhabitants of this fantastic world will then interfere themselves... What will happened to our adventurous ?
Will she be able to return to her protective shell without leaving too much mother-of-pearl there?




The story

A pearl is floating, lost in the water not far from a wreck. The pearl speaks feeling sorry for herself.

I am but a poor blind pearl. A pearl stolen from the depths, smuddled from the waters, dragged to the surface in a pot… I've been fished ladies and gentlemen… (Contrite!) Exposed to the winds although the air is harmful to me."
The world of silence heeds her calls, a cavalry of seahorses comes along, then two laughing squids. The pearl begs them to take her back to the bottom, she would like to take with her some of the light that she found on the surface.
Two flying fish enter into the dance, pushing a rainbowed ball with their snouts. They all place the pearl on the wreck and this strange looking group make their way into the deep.
The parade drifts on, happily and joyously, even when a crab attempts to grab the jewel of the seas. Balls fly, the pearl dives and dodges and escapes from the grips of the crab.
But the real danger comes from a confluent street in the form of a starving moray eel. The aquatic creatures panic faced with this predator, the seahorses, the crab and the fish hide especially as the two squids have just been eaten.
The pearl finds itself alone with the monster. Blind, she is unaware of the danger that she is in…
