AT THE END OF EVERYTHING ELSE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When her best friend, a little yellow bird named Tito, goes missing, Icka puts her inventive mind to the test and sets off on a mission over land and sea to save him. But nothing can prepare her for what she finds - a problem that she is unable to fix alone.

With the use of pedal power, At The End of Everything Else is a uniquely carbon neutral work, full of puppetry, animation and music where all the power required is generated by the collective energy of the team on stage.
