Celebrate Earth Day [https://www.earthday.org/] with Two in a Barrel [http://www.ruxandracantir.com/two-in-a-barrel], a clown-inspired, physical theatre performance for young audiences about the waste we create, the destructive consequences of our habits, and co-existing in an environment with limited resources.
Two lively quirky best friends - Riri and Moku - are confined to a barrel sitting on top of an island of rubbish. They love finding treasures in the vast waste that surrounds them and making up their own world of adventure and imagination. Every little discarded thing can be transformed into a magical trinket that starts a fun game. But being in tight quarters means they face new challenges, like having to ration their food and learning to coexist. Danger arises when the waste around them continues to pile higher and threatens to cover them altogether.
By looking at mass consumerism and the destructive effects (non bio-degradable) waste has on our environment, this Beckett-meets-Pixar show poses questions about the trash we produce and invokes awareness and environmental activism.
Immediately following the performance, Riri and Moku will host a workshop for the audience on how to create props and other fun toys and games from waste.
This workshop is part of our Earth Week series of events and workshops.
