The Island

…where plasic lives

In this show we decided to take on an uncomfortable theme of our times: garbage is suffocating our land, our air, our water… Sea, sky and plastic are the protagonists in a modern narrative which seems invented, and yet is a true story.

This is the story of the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch”, a huge island made of trash, floating in the Pacific Ocean. The voice of a little girl narrates the voyage of a plastic bag, pushed by the wind to this great plastic island, where it encounters objects which take on life, with the aid of two actrice-pupeteers and a musician.

Everything in this show– the characters, landscapes and musical instruments– is composed of the objects which fill our beaches, our trash bags, our daily lives: bottle tops, plastic

bottles, bins and cartons… in this show, the child-spectator becomes an active explorer , discovering a strange island and the creatures which inhabit  it  in a wave of  emotions: amusement, wonder and fear all contribute to give life to the images.

This is a voyage made of transformations, sounds, lights, colors and fantasy, much fantasy…
