‘Two in a Barrel’ is a clown-inspired, physical theatre performance for young audiences. Two lively quirky best friends – Riri and Moku – are confined to a barrel sitting on top of an island of rubbish in the ocean. They love finding treasures in the heaps of plastic on the stage to make their own world of adventure and imagination. However, 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 invokes awareness about environmental activism. Expect plenty of fun, crazy props and set design. Created and performed by Ruxandra Cantir and Sarah Rose Graber as part of SURGE Scotland’s Established Artist’s Residency.
“Very funny and sympathetic characters. Children from 3 years and up and adults would enjoy this.”
