A new, environmentally led outdoor spectacle, designed to challenge our ‘Throw Away Society’.
Cast-Away is a response to the excessive production and use of ‘disposables’ and the devastating effect they are having on our canals and waterways. Promoting debate and inquiry through a performance that combines engineering, imagination and dynamic movement.
An all-female cast present a story unravelling the difficulties to find change and elicit compassion. But the question we must be left with- Is it all too late?
