Audience Choice Award. Vote for event
Based on the 1952 Oscar-winning short movie by Norman McLaren. When a flower appears between the two peaceful neighbours it begins a series of surreal and comic sequences as the men try to take ownership of the new addition to the garden. As the fighting escalates the flower is trampled and families destroyed. With humour and absurdity, this clown piece explores cautionary territory as the warring men lose everything they hold dear. Far from subtle its message is succinct and delivered in a playful and engaging manner that remains surprisingly fresh 60 years later. There are no winners in war.
