Join Lowcountry Field Trips at this exciting show located at one of our favorite local spots, the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina.
What is Bash the Trash? Bash the Trash (BTT) is a performance ensemble that uses musical instruments built from trash to teach about science, sound and the environment. Through our music, dance and demonstrations we explore the families of musical instruments, explain how they work, and show students and teachers how to build their own from recycled and reused materials. BTT was founded in 1991 by husband-and-wife creative team of John Bertles and Carina Piaggio and reaches audiences around the US and the world.
What your students will see: BTT performances always contain a mix of music, science/instrument demonstrations, and audience participation. It can be noisy, and a bit boisterous, but through musical participation, group and individual questions, and back-and-forth banter between audience and performers we will be engaging your students throughout the show. We do love to have an active and participatory audience, but we won’t send them out of the show bouncing off the walls.
