Finding people who are aware of the environmental footprint of chewing gum can probably be counted on the fingers of one or at most two hands. You mean, what can I do wrong if I throw this little chewy thing on the ground. The interactive dance-puppet show Chewgumitwist informs the youngest about the multifaceted ecological issues, not only large but in small, almost invisible macro particles. The show is a combination of chewing gum and “gumtvist”, an elastic rope game that, with its unique combination, forms a dance story about the journey of chewing gum from pleasure, taste and excitement to loss of taste, boredom and waste. Together with Chewgumitwist, the youngest will participate in various chewing gum stories, their adventures of adventures, grouping, gluing, changing colors, cleaning, … through the elements of contemporary dance … They will be encouraged to dance, to question ecology to the environment, and also ecology to ourselves.
