PERFORMANCE OF ADRIFT

A raft in the middle of the ocean. Two women on board, lost in the high seas, a complex network of storms serves as a metaphor for courage and an intense struggle for survival.

PERFORMANCE OF OLD GREEN TIME MACHINE

The Old green Time Machine follows the journey of two intrepid and quirky time travellers who are in a race to save the world. In a future where all living things have been destroyed and all thats left is plastic, our two adventurers find themselves on an urgent journey into the past to change the course of history.
