"...TRASHedy is a firework of all possibilities that theatre has to offer"
Jury’s statement at Westwind Festival
"...performing:group manages to deal with the topic of consumerism and environmental protection with outstanding humor..."
"...incredibly close to reality..."
Although the name of the show combines the words „trash“ with "tragedy“ , this work is more a comedy of shoping absurdities than an ecological melodrama. Together with performer Daniel Matheus and composer Martin Rascher, Leandro Kees takes an unbiased look at the concept of capitalism and ecological intelligence. At the same time they retell, with animated pictures and sound effects, the evolution of intertwined economical routes as a kind of comic strip. TRASHedy is a stage genre of its own, mixing dance, theatre, animations and music to tell an ever-changing story of modern society.
It has won the grand prize of the jury at the renowned Westwind-Festival, placing it among the most outstanding works for children and young adults in NRW. It has been performed over 300 times in more than 15 countries.
