If plastic could talk, what story would it tell?
Invisible Giant tells the story of a being made of rubbish, who grows inexorably larger, its life shaped by what we throw away. With a powerful fusion of physical theatre, original live music and inventive puppetry we follow its epic journey to understand where it comes from. But can the Giant face where it’s going?
A play about our plastic shadow, from a story by Ben Macfadyen. Suitable for ages 6+
Many thanks to Brighton’s wonderful Nightingale Theatre for hosting the work-in-progress showing of Invisible Giant before the Brighton Fringe shows in May. Thanks also to IdeasTap and the Pebble Trust for supporting the project.
Fringe Guru review “The Invisible Giant is a piece of physical theatre which enchants from start to finish. *****”
IdeasTap review “An engaging fusion of music, poetry, puppetry and physical movement, it documents our painful relationship with plastic in a way that is touchingly human… This is an extremely ambitious work that manages to constantly bewitch its audience whilst always pushing at the boundaries of the imagination… A show that challenges and delights in equal measure.”
A Younger Theatre review
“This is a unique and intelligent show with a striking aesthetic. Physical movement and puppetry is where Feral excels, and the universally talented performers breathe life and energy into every movement… Feral Theatre are providing something very unusual in the world of children’s theatre.”
