We have to listen to Juanita’s Big Problem – because it’s time we cleaned up our act!
Juanita’s Big Problem is a 40-minute interactive environmental show by leading female clown Angelica Santander for children and young people.
Juanita wants to lift the lid on your recycling bin. What should we do with all this plastic? Where does all that plastic we recycle actually go? What can we do to stop it? Juanita can’t answer these questions on her own – she needs you to help her. So she invites the audience to assist in fulfilling her quest for a plastic-free world. Using clowning, plastic pollution is tackled in an provocative, entertaining and ridiculous way. An important, urgent and utterly hilarious show full of hope for our future.
Juanita’s Big Problem is an interactive show with the audience coming up with all the best answers.
