About Nest

Encouraging young generations to care about the environment and those we share it with, Nest uses shadow puppetry, original songs and clowning to follow Birtle and Piper, two birds and their eggs, in the only tree left in the city. A high energy show with giant sized props and steampunk costume, this two-hander gives a bird’s eye view of humans who leave their clutter in the urban landscape below. A bottle cap makes a cracking mirror, a five-pound note makes a tip top tablecloth and dice make a delightful stool... but what will happen when the dynamic duo take a shine to collecting and they fill their nest with too many things? A tree in a city. Two birds decide to make it their home and soon their cosy nest contains two very precious eggs. The human world below is full of exciting ‘thingamajigs’ and as Birtle and Piper’s longing to provide for their eggs grow, very quickly, so does the clutter in the nest. Age Recommendation: 3+
