“Magic Trash Day” is an interactive performance created for and with Philadelphia youth focused on differentiation and acceptance of difficult emotions, such as grief, loss, and longing.
The story follows a kid who finds a magic piece of trash that helps them metabolize their feelings around loss, longing, and sadness. The creative process includes story-sharing and trash art making workshops with youth in Philadelphia, in which the theater creators transform their images, stories, and characters into the exciting world
Magic Trash Day is premiering at the Liberty Lands Amphitheater as part of the Theater for Youth Performance track of the Cannonball Festival. Directed by Lillian Ransijn and Dylan Smythe of Rough & Tumble Productions, Costume and installation design by trash artist and dancer Mehgan Abdel-Moneim, and performances by Mehgan Abdel-Moneim, Marsell Anhel Chavarria, and Bellisant Corcoran-Mathe. Join as we find treasure within ourselves and amongst the trash.
