Using readymade children’s toys such as toy soldiers, guns and war toys, tablet computers, smart phones and videos, “Plastic Heroes” is a show that has a tragicomic perspective on modern wars. Passion, violence, sex, hate and fear is put on display in the form of naive children’s toys. The show aims to display the conflict between the innocence of a child’s play encountering the bleeding reality of the adult wars. A collage of amazement, fun and fleeting images of war, this performance makes the audience face hard and painful situations in the form of an entertaining and intriguing puppet show.
