The manifest of Boa Scenekunst sounds "Playfulness, absurdity and musicality".

Much of the physical material for the performances is created through improvisation built on different techniques from physical theatre communities and schools. Creating a stage language built on the expressive body and the poetry in the room has been one of the most important objectives. The company also has wished to bring the playfulness of new circus, using objects and rooms, into the more holistic mindset of the theatre.

Boa Scenekunst is a little culture factory for children and youth, mixing circus, theatre, puppetry, clownery and literature into its productions. The heart of Boa beats a little bit extra for children living under rough conditions.
