Wednesday 26th October & Thursday 27th October
Lunderston Bay, Inverkip
Daily performances at 12pm & 2pm
30 mins | Free but ticketed
Plastic waste is having an irreversible, devastating effect on the planet especially in the sea. A recent study has found micro-plastics, not only in sea creatures but now present in human blood.
Dudendance imagine a new Alien Species emerging when plastics mutate into living beings. The spectacular costumes can be shed, shaped and transformed in tandem with the wind and sea. Dudendance have created a juxtaposition of visual sensation combining organic forms with artificial materials –costumes that suggest sea creatures transform into trash.
An outdoor performance and headphone installation that weaves together ethereal dance, otherworldly
soundscapes and sculptural costumes.
