Le Roi poubelle

April 24 to May 3, 2024
Duration: 75 minutes
Ages: 9 to 14 year olds

On an island made up entirely of trash, Elise, a young shipwrecked documentary filmmaker, meets the enigmatic Roi poubelle (The Trash King), the sole inhabitant and self-proclaimed ‘ruler’ of this drifting mass of plastic.

Through nostalgic melodies and musical delirium, Le Roi poubelle explores loneliness, mourning, hope and the feeling of having to face alone the harmful effects of overconsumption.

The music is composed and played on instruments made entirely from waste and recycled materials. In a playful way, the piece invites the audience to rethink its relationship with its material consumption.

ALL PERFORMANCES ARE ENGLISH SURTITLED. YOU ALSO HAVE THE OPTION TO TRY ON OUR AUGMENTED REALITY GLASSES FOR A MORE IMMERSIVE SURTITLING EXPERIENCE. TOGGLE BETWEEN ENGLISH OR FRENCH. YOUR PREFERENCE! OF COURSE, IT'S FREE OF CHARGE.
