Spat up by our polluted seas, Detritus is a king in search of what is destroying his home, whilst relaying it’s call for help.
He comes in the form of a strange spirit, draped head to toe, embodied and bound by human waste found at the depths of the ocean. Here to roam this strange world above the surface with an important message for its people. Originally commissioned for Pitch’d Circus Arts Festival in Cork, Ireland 2018. Detritus of the Deep is an unspoken spectacular yet intimate performance, all about our impact on the natural world. A strikingly visual solo stilt walking act that comes equipped with its own sound system to echo the sounds of the sea, a trident for conjuring giant bubbles, lights for night-time events and shells to give out to audience members with messages of help and hope.
