An unexpected visitor invites us to view our direct surroundings with fresh eyes, and to explore them with new-found curiosity. COMETA is a galactic adventure during which we marvel at gravitation, the possibilities of movement and the power of empathy. It is about geometry, playfulness and lightspeed, the universe, our fantasy, and the voyage into space. Yet most of all, it is a party, to celebrate that we have met! COMETA is a journey of discovery that the audience undertakes together, fulfilled through the interaction and participation of all the people involved. It invites us for a game with fantasy and emphasises the necessity of empathy and shared joy. For everyone between the ages of six and ten years of age!

Duration: 50 min.
