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 .......

"The girl who stopped the world certainly speaks to our contemporaries...."

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.

From the process of experimenting with the materials

A magical story and an adventurous experience

"..... in some amazing way, the work equally addresses the exterior and the interior, the beautiful and the ugly, everything we can control and everything we can not control. The storyline is at the same time the inner reality of the girl, her mind, heart, and emotions, and the outer reality of her life and reality. ....


....The work manages to create an imaginary world where the challenges of the contemporary world are tackled in an adventurous way. Environmental issues are intertwined with the feelings of the girl who experiences anxiety and worry about the changes that are taking place in her daily life but at the same time her well-being, emotions, and the whole earth. All the big issues are addressed in this impactful show, but what is perhaps most important is that it greets the audience with warmth and great hope as it sends us all the message that by reacting, doing something about our problems we can all make a difference."
