About this event
Seagull Mama — A Performance Piece about Trash and Recycling
Performed by theatre artist & educator Kathie diStefano from Rotterdam’s Avalanche Arts.
This interactive show takes young audience members on a journey through the eyes of a seagull mamma who mistakes trash for fish while hunting for food for her young. How do our waterways get so polluted with plastic trash? The term ‘plastic soup’ is introduced; lakes, rivers, and seas that have so much plastic trash that no fish can live there.
