Follow the journey of the Rubbish Prince, a 3.5-metre tall puppet made up of clean recyclables. Given a new lease of life from the recycling process, he leaps back into the neighbourhood accompanied by some of his best friends. Join them on their quest to rescue a fellow puppet character from the effects of non-recyclable waste!
This contemporary outdoor performance ignites and stretches imaginations beyond the ordinary. Through collective upcycling efforts of various community partners in putting this production together, The Rubbish Prince is an allegory to the relationship we have with the materials that we consume and discard daily.
Come participate in the pre-show art installation activity and immerse in the interactive show with eye-catching puppets and mesmerising music. Join us for a whimsical journey - perfect for families and kids - that magically transforms the public spaces in your neighbourhood.
