The girl who stopped the world 

Everything is made of the same material - Me and you, dog shit and space dust

Can a magical world be born out of the trash we throw away? Recycling, imagination, transformation .......

 

Dealing with big challenges often requires the courage to dive into unspoken depths. The Girl Who Stopped the World is a captivating visual experience for young and old. Fabulous creativity goes hand in hand with a simmering imagination! The audience is led from one world to another that is each other more interesting, bizarre, and beautiful. The girl's story is unpredictable and exciting but at the same time pleasantly familiar.
