Trash Alchemy (NSW, Australia)


3 Oct 2015 - 23 Dec 2016

Short Synopsis

Trash Alchemy is a surreal adventure tale for family audiences, which sees our protagonist journey from a bizarre parallel universe of advertising bombardment and product overload, through polluted yet magical oceans to the creation of his own trash civilization on an island of flotsam and jetsam - it is a story of discovery and ingenuity and ultimately a tale of one person's magnificent journey to change the way we live in this world.  The set, props and puppetry are made entirely from found and recycled/re-purposed materials, allowing us to discover the value of what we normally discard. 

Reviews Feature

Trash Alchemy is an extraordinary story of transformation and discovery – a fantastical adventure from supermarket aisle to the belly of a sea creature, through the ugliest place on the planet to a civilization of exquisite invention. This is the bizarre, hilarious and confrontational tale of an epic journey that we all should take.
