Ever wondered what the life of a discarded plastic bag is like?

Afternoon of a FoehnĀ is a visual theatre piece that takes audiences on a dreamy flight of wonderment.

Long forgotten plastic bags come to life as graceful ballerinas dancing to the tune of Debussyā€™sĀ Prelude to the Afternoon of a FaunĀ with a little help from a ā€œfoehnā€ or warm, dry wind.

Itā€™s Christmas and Clara Nightingale receives a beautifully-crafted nutcracker from Dr Drosselmeyer, a guest at her parentā€™s annual Christmas party.

That night, she lies in bed with her new doll by her side. Suddenly, magic unfolds and her house is invaded by an army of mice. The nutcracker springs to life to defend the house and a fierce battle ensues.
