Sandbox

Winner of the 2019 “Pikku-Itu” award from the Association of Finnish Children’s Cultural Centres, Sandbox is a contemporary circus show taking place in children’s everyday environment: a playground sandpit. An archaeologist-geographer-sandologist arrives to a regular sandpit to carry out her very serious and important sand experiments. Only to soon find out that the sandpit isn´t as ordinary as it seemed to be... Using the sand as a prop, set, costume and stage Sandbox creates playful visual and physical comedy that appeals to the whole family.
