Scrap is a family show aimed at audiences aged 6+. Devised by the company, its roots are to be found in a Nepalese traditional fairytale, updated for audiences today.
Scrap gently explores the eternal theme of finding new life in the most unexpected places. With a message of renewal and recycling at its heart, it’s the story of a young boy and his journey through the magical world of the Dump. The setting is the unwanted and unvalued, the rubbish dump, as new life emerge from the debris for an epic adventure.
The show seamlessly combines a human cast with puppets and is driven by a powerful, original soundtrack and new songs. It is flexibly designed to fit a range of spaces and can be accompanied by workshops on puppet making and movement.
