"Amazing Puppet Show.. Irresistible and Fierce. TT"
"Ironic, Black Humor Masterpiece. **** 4 Stars"
Aamulehti, Tampere, Finland
"Clearly one of these little miracles, which only puppet and object theatre brings.
From a game of discreet naïveté and formal simplicity it manages to touch the nerves,
bring up emotions and thoughts in a way that is anything but naive or simple."
Leipziger Volkzeitung, Germany
“War is about to begin,
now is the time to become heroes.
But the soldiers are plastic,
the battlefield a table
and home is just a distant image on a screen.
In a combat with no clear enemy or goal,
the border between reality and fantasy blurs:
is this really happening,
or is it all just a game?”
Plastic Heroes is made entirely of ready made
children's toys, mainly those of soldiers,
weapons and war.
It also incorporates use of ipads, iphones and video.
Desire, violence, sex, hate and fear are put on the table
as the so called 'naive' toys are brought to life,
and the innocence of child's play
encounters the bleeding reality of adult war.
The show is a surprising, funny and fast paced collage of war images,
and it manages to deal with hard and painful issues while giving the
audience a funny, wild and refreshing puppetry experience.
The show has been invited to more than 20 countries, and is still intensively touring
in Festivals and Theaters worldwide.
*The show is almost entirely without words*
