The Whale Plastic Ocean by Circo Rum Ba Ba

Sun 4 July | 12 noon, 2pm and 4pm (subject to weather)
Outside Chelsea Theatre, 7 World's End Place, SW10 0DR


Plastic Ocean by Circo Rum Ba Ba offers bold explorers who squeeze into the belly of an enormous inflatable Sperm Whale where they find themselves in the depths of the bubbling, kelp-swirling ocean. They encounter an acrobatic diver who leads them swimmingly through the age old journey of the life of an ancient Leatherback Turtle.

With the use of exquisite puppets, comedy and music, Circo Rum Ba Ba explore the tale of sea creatures and their battle to survive in an ocean full of rubbish. The audience help to save the turtle and the Whale from a deluge of plastic and travel from the Indian ocean to a coral reef, leaving feeling empowered that everyone can make a difference.
