And we are back with the 2024 tour of Plastic Drastic Fantastic. The first of the shows this year took place as part of Southbank Centre’s ‘Spring Family Fun’ season.

Plastic Drastic Fantastic is a dance theatre work for children (7+ years) and their families, exploring our complex relationship with plastics – the fantastic possibilities they offer, as well as the drastic consequences to the environment. It was originally created in 2022 as a co-production with Polka Theatre. It has since toured to venues within London and nationally.

“I strongly recommend that parents and children catch this wonderful show.”



The show is accessible to d/Deaf and hard of hearing audiences as well as non-English speakers or those with developing language and communication skills.

Plastic Drastic Fantastic is a non-verbal dance piece and doesn’t include any spoken words. The dancers use their bodies, expressions and gestural movements to guide you through the performance.

We also provide sensory cushions with vibrating motor tuned to the rhythm of the music to give another way of experiencing the performance.
