Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
If you’ve got kids six and up (or you are familiar with your inner nine-year-old), don’t overlook this zany feat of two-man acrobatic storytelling because it’s not listed at the Kids Venue.
Warned against eating cotton candy and talking to strange clowns at the carnival, Skip and Zee do exactly what they’re told — until they are out of sight of their mothers.
In a sugar-fuelled escapade, the two boys are magically pulled into a rubbish bin, trapped in a world of mobster flies (these wiseguys run the dump), kung-fu seagulls, a sinister centipede and more, all with ulterior motives.
But not all bugs are bad, and two of them have a plan that might help the boys out. Rubbish is not garbage.
— Wendy Burke
From the Fringe program:
Rubbish follows the journey of Skip and Zee, two young boys who get lost in a bizarre carnival and are mysteriously sucked into a rubbish bin where they shrink to the size of insects and are thrown into the city dump.
Rubbish is a fast-paced physical theatre piece that uses two actors to create over 30 characters including a centipede, talking bed springs, mobster flies and scavenging seagulls.
