Following a sell-out run of the Afghanistan inspired There Shall Be Fireworks, The Plasticine Men return from research in India with a razor-sharp new show exploring what our relationship with the car says about us.
The English and Indian skeleton crew of a crumbling advertising agency prepare their final pitch: for a global car campaign to end all car campaigns.
Original music mixing East and West joins a symphony of car horns and slogans as they brainstorm their way through traffic. ‘The Relentless Pursuit of Perfection. Motion and Emotion. Don’t Dream It, Drive It…’ A gleaming SUV looms large on a billboard above the gridlock, gliding around the bends of an empty and endless mountain highway.
Belt up for a pedal-to-the-metal road trip, drawing on research in New Delhi, Mumbai and Birmingham, to navigate questions of growth and progress, and the dreams that connect us.
