This digital retelling is inspired by the 2018 production Junk . It will revisit Scoop, the junk lady, and show you into her secret space – a place where she gathers and stores all of the interesting things that other people throw away, and uses them to tell to tell stories.
The original production featured set and puppets made entirely out of recycled materials – including Bertie the bottle, jellyfish made from plastic bags, a sewer rat made from old slippers and a giant umbrella octopus.
During our closure period, we’ve been releasing daily resources showing families how they can use recycled materials such as egg boxes, cardboard, newspaper and even coffee capsules to make their own puppets at home. We hope that this performance will highlight the magic that can be found in every day objects and further inspire children to get creative with the ‘junk’ that we can all find around our homes.
This production will reunite the original company of Junk and will be filmed with a skeleton crew in Little Angel Studios, following social distancing guidelines.
