What is a Watt? Where do all the cables go? Can the audience power the show?
Two friends go on a surreal journey asking “What is energy?“ using their trusty science book. Disgusted and disillusioned with the way we create electrical energy today, they decide to disconnect from the system. Powerless and unable to finish the show, they feel defeated by the ways of the world. Returning to their trusty book and remembering that knowledge is power, they try to find a way to surmount their problems and save the show from disaster. With the help of the audience they realise that they can take the power into their own hands and generate their own electrical energy.
Featuring acrobatics, physical theatre, unicycle and mind bending skipping the pair figure out how they can transform banana energy into music and escape the fossil fuel industry.
