Escape From Plastika


Inspiring sustainable behaviour and creative participation from kids and families, Escape From Plastika is a 40 minute, place based, dance and theatre work that takes audiences on an imaginative and active mission for the future – exploring the problem of plastic!
With the help of their mission recruits (that’s you), Alpha, Delta and Pi time travel to the year 2109 to planet Plastika – formerly known as Earth, and otherwise known as the playground or parkland in your neighbourhood or community. With the important task to lessen a most unwelcome makeover to beloved planet Earth, audiences discover their own power to change the future.

Escape From Plastika is coming to a venue near you, with 3 shows across Canberra and Braidwood! These shows are free to attend.
