"In Cometa, her first creation for young audiences, Roser López Espinosa sends the children on a journey of adventure and imagination that begins on stage and ends in an unknown galaxy full of surprises."

Rheinische Post

With boundless playfulness and a sense of wonder, we will set out on an interstellar voyage that explores the mysteries of the universe. Unleashing our imaginations along the way, we will marvel at the force of gravity, and discover the possibilities of movement, the power of empathy and the incredible speed of light.

But most of all we will celebrate meeting each other. So, come one, come all, and let us revel in the magic of Cometa, where the stars align to create an unforgettable experience of joy, connection, and shared adventure.
