When a Poo Woos
Dance Theatre for Families
“Yes, I am a piece of poo!”
When all is “shat” and done, can Excreman still find meaning in his “excremental” existence?
Excreman and his group of little poo-men are fighting for their dreams in an epic adventure through the dark and stinky sewers, where they encounter violent waves and even a mysterious “her”. Can Excreman fulfill his destiny and land in a field of fragrant roses? This summer, join the poo-squad on their perilous yet heart-warming quest of love and fantasy!
In a pioneering collaboration, City Contemporary Dance Company (CCDC) and Chun Tian Hua Hua are bringing the latter’s popular children’s book The Excreman to the stage with contemporary dance for the first time. With a 40-strong ensemble led by Artistic Director Yuri Ng, the performance features a series of ensemble performance, ingenious costume, fantastical stage designs, dazzling animation projections, and paired with newly-arranged classical music. Enjoy an emotional roller-coaster ride with your family in this “poo”-fectly whimsical show that will both entertain and warm the cockles of your hearts.
