A freak storm has exposed a containership of LEGO to the power of the sea, scattering millions of multicoloured building blocks into the ocean…
Business is slow in the sleepy seaside town of Bevill, where a handful of locals shuffle through their lives, living one day to the next. Not a single visitor has been spotted in weeks. Bevill’s luck seems to have run out; but better times are racing towards its beaches in the form of tiny coloured plastic blocks.
As the tide changes, an influx of tourists and LEGO enthusiasts pour into the town, in search of their very own piece of the unnatural disaster. But amongst the jubilation, currents are shifting – waves hide secrets, and a shadowier story is unfurled beneath the murky waters as Bevill’s residents start to lose their grip on what is truly important…
Based on a true event and using original live music, sea shanties, beautiful physical theatre and puppetry, INKBLOC ensemble create a colourful world with a distinctly darker undercurrent.
“Surprising, poignant, funny and impressive – all while ultimately serving up a rather damning reflection on human greed… contemporary, colourful, creative and brilliant, this performance packs hell of a punch.”
“It’s highly stylised – poetic, rhythmic and choreographed to perfection.”
“A great mix of humour, original music and crafted storytelling.”
