Two in a Barrel

Two in a Barrel

17 June 2022

Two lively quirky best friends - Riri and Moku - are confined to a barrel sitting on top of an island of rubbish.

Description

Two in a Barrel is a clown-inspired, physical theatre performance for young audiences about the waste we create, the destructive consequences of our habits, and co-existing in an environment with limited resources.

Riri and Moku are confined to a barrel sitting on top of an island of rubbish. They love finding treasures in the vast waste that surrounds them and making up their own world of adventure and imagination. Every little discarded thing can be transformed into a magical trinket that starts a fun game. But being in tight quarters means they face new challenges, like having to ration their food and learning to coexist. 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-biodegradable) waste has on our environment, this Beckett-meets-Pixar show poses questions about the trash we produce and invokes awareness and environmental activism.

The Birnam Book Festival Committee were so pleased with how the new facilities in the Auditorium added to an extremely professionally presented event. The lighting allowed us to create staging to match the country’s leading book festival events, such as we’ve seen in Edinburgh.
