Jakob tries to copy the painting of his hero Jackson Pollock. But how can he make the right blot on the right spot?
Should he drip, throw, pour or splash the paint? Does he need to work with brushes or sticks or entire containers? He uses all of his body parts, but no matter how he turns, twists, jumps, or rolls: his painting does not resemble the original.
Plock! is visual circus-soundtheatre that appeals to all the senses. With buzzing cans, dancing paint, coloured sounds, and an acrobatic painter.
A performance for everyone who likes to colour outside the lines every now and then.

“a gloriously messy introduction to the possibilities of paint, and of the human body, that absolutely delights its primary school age audience”

“In just under an hour, Plock! explores some big themes: art as performance, the artist as performer, the audience as performers and co-creators. In summary, a work of art.”
