Plastic Life - Tijmen Teunissen en Claire Hermans

During their performance in Walhalla, dancers and performers Claire Hermans and Tijmen Teunissen literally dive into the plastic problem the world is facing.

Plastic Life is an invitation to face that problem. Literally, because a mountain of plastic plays the leading role in the performance. The plastic initially appears playful and light, but turns into an overpowering mass that takes on menacing shapes.

Claire and Tijmen move in and through the plastic landscape and make you think: what is our relationship with plastic?

While dancing and moving, they show a world where something new can emerge amid all the plastic.
