The Old Green Time Machine follows the journey of two intrepid and quirky time travellers who are in a race to save the world. In a future where all living things have been destroyed and all that is left is plastic, our two adventurers find themselves on an urgent mission. It's a shame their carbon friendly time machine bicycle has seen better days! This family friendly show, for library spaces and unusual venues is a whirlwind of contemporary dance, music, poetry and fun. Performances include an interactive 'Stay, Play and Learn' session after the show!
