The soundtrack of the plastic age

As an avid kite surfer Merijn Tinga is annoyed by all the plastic waste floating in the sea. And as a biologist, he worries about its harmful effects on marine life. Tinga decided to become an environmental activist and nicknamed himself The plastic soup surfer. On a board, made of plastic litter, he kite surfed for more than 350 kilometers along the Dutch and Belgian coast. His action contributed to the introduction of deposits on plastic bottles and cans. After Tinga’s talk there will be the theatre performance The soundtrack of the plastic age in which Rogier de Nijs plays on fully-fledged musical instruments, made out of plastic waste. Listen to the sound of plastic!
