Teaser video

In 1864, Jules Verne published his famous adventure novel, Journey to the Center of the Earth. To mark the 160th anniversary of its publication, immerse yourself in the world of the book through a unique immersive theater piece.


It is the spring of 1899 and you are invited to the inauguration evening of the Gouffre de Padirac.

Edouard-Alfred Martel, pioneer in the exploration of this major geological curiosity, is happy to give a preview visit to a few selected people, the famous “Devil's Hole” of the Dordogne valley.

For the occasion, several distinguished guests were invited to the celebration, including the illustrious novelist Jules Verne and the actress Sarah Bernhardt.

But while the evening is in full swing, a young woman, in panic, bursts in. It's Elizabeth, she explains that her fiancé, Axel Lidenbrock, went down alone into the Abyss and that he disappeared, kidnapped by a winged monster. Visitors will then go on a real manhunt and descend to the center of the Earth to find him.

Throughout their journey, visitors will meet our protagonists. Together they will discover the depths of the Earth and be transported into the fabulous universe of Jules Verne in order to solve the mystery of the disappearance of Axel Lidenbrock.
