A magical world where, at the touch of a puppeteer’s hand, the contents of a bin bag can transform before your eyes
Come and join our two excavators as they scuttle through the muck finding treasures hidden amongst a world of rubbish.
A magical world where, at the touch of a puppeteer’s hand, the contents of a bin bag can transform before your eyes. It’s a beautiful, silly and inventive world
Post Show Workshops
The workshop has been designed to accompany the performance of ‘Recycled Rubbish’ by Theatre-Rites.
Workshops will take place 15-30 minutes after the show. Tickets must be booked separately and are limited.
‘Recycled Rubbish’ invites audiences into a disposable world, where discarded objects are animated and a team of resourceful ‘excavators’ bring life to the thrown-away.
During the workshop you will meet another excavator who will invite you to create your own puppet from the ‘rubbish’.
The creation of Recycled Rubbish was inspired by Theatre Rites’s hugely successful show Rubbish, which toured the UK and was featured on Blue Peter.
“It is precious and profound and playfully inspiring” Total Theatre
