More Info

Get set for a dynamic adventure with three out-of-this-world musical misfits as they repurpose the junk the world has forgotten.

In the hands of the Junklandians, ordinary recycled materials are transformed into extraordinary musical instruments and forgotten junk comes alive in exciting and surprising ways.

Three brothers from the faraway planet JUNKLANDIA embark on a mission to Earth to teach the earthlings the Junklandian ways of music and creative recycling. This high-octane show is a spectacle of rhythm, dance, circus and comedy guaranteed to blow your mind!

Kitchen utensils, cardboard boxes and buckets become the greatest drum set in the world, plastic bags are an amazing musical instrument and the human body becomes a unique sound machine. With a language of gibberish and rhythm, this show is perfect fun any age and nationality.

The show ends with an incredible ‘junk orchestra’ where each audience member, equipped with a recycled instrument, will come together to create a one-of-a-kind junkyard band! Bring along something that makes noise and create your own instrument. By uniting in rhythm, music and movement, the audience can experience the tangible power of collaboration and teamwork whilst having fun. You won’t look at recycled materials the same way after seeing Junklandia.
