CAP UCLA will present the world premiere of the experience of Robin Frohardt’s Plastic Bag Store: The Film. An immersive puppet-theater piece designed to take place in a storefront retail space, The Plastic Bag Store transforms from an installation into a dynamic series of stories that traverse ancient history, the present day and a future dystopia. A tragicomic ode to the foreverness of plastic, Plastic Bag Store employs inventive puppetry, humor, craft and a critical lens to explore how the hordes of plastic waste we’re leaving behind might be misinterpreted by future generations.
The Plastic Bag Store was commissioned by Times Square Arts, developed by Carolina Performing Arts at UNC Chapel Hill, and produced by Pomegranate Arts
