You'll have different scenarios to choose from:

1934, Sais, Egypt. Welcome to one of the excavation sites led by Professor Isarn de Bessières. The professor is a distinguished Egyptologist, an excentric adventurer and passionate about ancient myths such as Atlantis... To accompany him on his expeditions, he has brought together a group of explorers from all over the world: English, French, Swedish, German, American... all of them willing to follow him to the ends of the earth.

The adventurers of the lost idol:
In Professor de Bessières' team of explorers is Captain Richardson and Professor Stone. Today, Richardson and Stone are good friends but that's not always been the case... Let us tell you the incredible tale of how they met: "Professor Stone had been exploring the Amazon Rainforest for several months, on a quest for the mysterious lost idol. But he was not the only one on this quest, and Captain Richardson did his best to put him off the scent... The two explorers finally went head-to-head in a merciless struggle to outwit the traps of the temple and capture the idol. An explosive encounter!"
The choreography and scenography of the battle is spectacular, yet comic!
20 minutes, once or twice a day.

In search of Atlantis:
Obsessed by Atlantis, the Professor de Bessières organises expeditions in search of this mythical lost city upon discovering any new information. This time, he seems to be pretty sure of himself and he is calling on anyone who will help him! He has asked two fellow explorers, Captain Richardson and Sergeant Footloose, to recruit a team of elite adventurers to accompany him on his mission. Richardson and Footloose will need to carry out a meticulous recruitment procedure, examine each candidate, test them and come up with the most out-of-the-ordinary challenges possible.
Join up, they said!
Comical show, suitable for the whole family.
20 minutes, performed once or twice a day.

The Marcus Brody Orchestra:
One of Professor de Bessières' most notable quirky characteristics is his inability to work without music! So what could be better, to liven up his camp, than a live jazz trio? From New Orleans to gypsy jazz, swing or big band, you'll be plunged into the musical craze that swept the first few decades of the 20th century...
Jazz trio (saxophone, double bass, drums), for the whole family!
30 minutes, 3 or 4 times a day.
