Plastic….is it friend or foe? Remarkable or rubbish? Helpful or harmful? Dance Woking is pleased to be able to present Plastic Drastic Fantastic a contemporary dance theatre work for children and their families created by Akademi Dance. This has been made possible following funding support received from an Arts Council England Project Grant.
The show explores humanity’s complex relationship with plastics – the fantastic possibilities they offer, as well as the drastic consequences to the environment.
Drawing from the Indian classical dance form Bharatanatyam and South Asian dance techniques, the artists investigate plastics and the dangers of their misuse through intricate movement, gestures and play, infused with interaction with the audience.
The processes and stories underpinning this dance project have been steered by children and young people, who are at the heart of the research for this work, created in consultation with material scientists at UCL.
Designed to be accessible for D/deaf audiences, Plastic Drastic Fantastic is a vibrant, fun and thought-provoking show for our time. An Akademi and Polka Theatre co-production.
This workshop is suitable for those who are interested to learn the Indian classical dance form Bharatanatyam and South Asian dance techniques and who are also interested in children’s dance theatre and how a topic is woven into a dance theatre following consultations with scientist and child focus groups.
