The Bottle Collector by Asking for Trouble

The Bottle Collector is a brave combination of circus/physical theatre and object based puppetry where a collection of bottles provides impetus to share poetic images, remarkable physicality and stories of humanity. The show has been inspired by observing children and their collections, their delight in arranging coins or buttons, capturing small creatures and gathering pockets full of shells. Bottle Collector involves two characters one with their valuable case of precious bottles and another character whose collections at first seem a lot like rubbish. A gentle commentary on how we value things with a price tag and a musing that perhaps there is more joy and beauty to be found in unexpected places than we realize.
Award winning Clunes based physical theatre company Asking for Trouble presents their new show for families, be
astounded as they pull messages out of bottles and create stories out of thin air using a teaspoon of magic, a pinch of puppetry and a daring dollop of circus tricks.
