 ‘Plastic Ocean’ is a show that takes place in front of their 18 metre sperm whale.   

The audience interacts with the eccentric marine biologist, Netty Northwest, who engages them with nautical repartee. 

A soundscape of waves and seagulls builds, until the performers emerge from the side and the back of the Whale with beautiful puppets made especially for the show by ‘War Horse’ puppet master, Jimmy Grimes.  

An acrobatic diver leads the audience through the life and journeys of an ancient Leatherback Turtle and the threats and dangers it faces to survive. Circo Rum Ba Ba explores the tale of sea creatures and their battle to survive in an ocean full of rubbish. The audience helps save the turtle and the whale from a deluge of plastic, leaving them feeling empowered, that everyone can make a difference.
