Southbank Centre

Running Time : 30 mins, no interval


Show Details

Backup presents its powerful message about climate change through thirty minutes of brilliant physical theatre and low-tech wizardry.
The scene is a snowy landscape festooned with miniature trees and houses with lights twinkling and smoke puffing from chimneys. Along comes a tiny campervan containing three filmmakers on their way to capture footage of an icy landscape in a part of the world which is disappearing – the Arctic. Disarming, witty and inventive physical comedy, Backup becomes a moving drama that compels us to face what we are doing to our planet.


Total Theatre Award winner and popular hit at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe, Backup is a first collaboration between two leading Belgian theatre groups with a shared interest in physical and object theatre, animation and video.

"Rarely is so much accomplished in so short a time. They make us laugh with their ingenuity and then break our hearts with their profound message about climate change" - The Scotsman
