Trashcatchers Ball

The Trashcatchers Ball was devised in collaboration with twenty young participants.

The Trashcatchers Ball created beauty from rubbish through the design, fabrication and animation of sculptures and costumes from discarded materials. Through public workshops and the project’s finale – the Trashcatchers Ball – audiences were encouraged to reassess the beauty and use of the things that get thrown away and imagine a world where the lack of resources make this an imperative.

The Trashcatchers was one of the highlights of the Lift Festival at Stratford 2008.
