‘There once was a wild windswept place, near nowhere and close to forgotten that was filled with the things no one wanted….’

Plastic Paradiso’ is set on a lost island, not so far away from here, which is surrounded by plastic.

The island’s only inhabitant lives there amongst the washed-up plastic. She makes the plastic into her house, to decorate her clothes, and sometimes into make-believe creatures that she can play with. But one day, a real bird arrives on the island. Can she discover the joy of real nature and friendship?Inspired by ‘The Tin Forest’ by Helen Ward, this is a charming and timely dance theatre show for children and their grown-ups that examines climate change, plastic pollution, and their impact on the planet.

Choreographer / Performer Claire Benson and Designer Holly Miller reimagine our household plastic as simple props. This watery and magical world is brought to life through puppetrydance, music, and lighting

The audience can join in too! Come and make your own plastic puppet before the show if you book here

Relaxed Performance: suitable for children aged 0-11yrs and their grown-ups. <img src="ClaireBensoninPlasticPAradiso.jpg" alt="">

What to expect during your visit

Most of our seating is in rows, but it is not allocated so you can sit wherever you feel comfortable.

Soft seating (cushions and beanbags) will be available on the front row.

Our family shows are always relaxed performances. This means that you can leave/re-enter the auditorium if you need to and that talking is OK – children ask questions! There is space in the foyer to park your buggy. If you have any specific access needs, then let our friendly Front of House team know if you need help.

We hope you enjoy the show.
