Talking Rubbish

Online performance commissioned by Spark Arts in 2020.

Talking Rubbish was created during Lockdown for distribution across the Among Ideal Friends network.

Meet Charlotte the Excavator. She loves Talking Rubbish, it’s her favourite subject.

Join her as she digs around at home, sorting through her rubbish. You’ll also meet her fellow Excavators Mohsen and Aya who share her passion for finding treasure in what other people throw away. You’ll be amazed at the friends they make in this wonderful world of Rubbish.

In Episode 1 Charlotte is always holding on to her rubbish, never knowing what to do with it all. She asks her fellow Excavators Mohsen and Aya for help, but they are too busy with their new friend: a rather unusual looking and very playful dog.


In Episode 2, Charlotte finds a way to reduce her rubbish. Inspired by Mohsen and Aya, she creates a puppy to play with their very lively dog. But Mohsen and Aya’s new house guest is very resistant to recycling.  Was Charlotte able to help?
