A Matter of Material


It’s funny how materials earn the label of ‘disposable’. But what if their stories continued after consumption, co-existing in a junkyard world.... AND if it was a catalyst for an ecological disaster, creating creatures like a plastic bag man, hungry for man-made material? How would this disturb the harmony of nature?

6 May 2022 - 8 May 2022

Presented by:

Maisie Crosdale and Anywhere Festival

Join us at Allison Engine Testing Stands – an aero engine testing facility constructed during World War Two. Here the walls hold stories of abandonment and magic.

A Matter of Material, explores what happens when our consumerist culture is reflected back to us by the things we created, consumed, and cast away. It’s ‘A Matter of Material’ one would say. Our non-verbal performance engages with puppetry, object theatre and classical music to communicate our message through an accessible and unique storytelling form – perfect for universal audiences.

Previous Reviews:

“Emotive and abstract while still heartbreakingly clear in its intention.”

“An adorable commentary on pollution and disposable culture.”

“A touching piece of physical poetry, found material; a sonnet to our planet.”

“Emotional, Educational, Thought-Provoking, Colourful, Imaginative.”

“I am a little bit scared of rubbish now.”
