Plastic Drastic Fantastic at Southbank Centre 

Friend or foe? Remarkable or rubbish? Drawing on South Asian dance, this contemporary dance theatre work for families explores the wonders and woes of plastics.  

Produced by Akademi, Plastic Drastic Fantastic explores our complex relationship with plastics – the fantastic possibilities they offer, as well as the drastic consequences to the environment. 

The artists investigate plastics and the dangers of their misuse through intricate movement, gestures and play in this work choreographed by Subathra Subramaniam.


Akademi makes vibrant, fascinating, and meaningful South Asian dance. With care at the centre of all that they do, Akademi uses the compelling power of storytelling, rhythm and gestures to create deeper connections with each other and our wider world. Akademi has been the beating heart of South Asian dance in the UK since 1979.


Plastic Drastic Fantastic is a non-verbal dance piece and doesn’t include any spoken words. The artistic and technical team on the project worked closely with creative consultant for d/Deaf audiences Ramesh Meyappan in the development of the show.

Location: Purcell Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London SE1 8XX
