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. Most of us think what can I do wrong if I throw this little chewy thing on the ground. The interactive dance-puppet show Chigumitwist informs the youngest about the multifaceted ecological issues, not only large but also small, almost invisible microparticles. The show is a combination of chewing gum and "gumitvist", 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 Chigumitvist through the elements of contemporary dance, the youngest will participate in various chewing gum stories, their adventures, grouping, glueing, changing colours, cleaning etc. They will be encouraged to dance, to question ecology, to think about our impact on the environment and the impact our actions have on us.
In collaboration with the festival Contemporary Dance Platform / Production: Maribor Dance Room and Institute MOJA KREACIJA Maribor.
