This ecologically critical performance is aimed at both adults and children. It shows the consequences of human actions on one side of the planet and the other (the butterfly effect theory). Through a poetic, dance-visual composition, it raises awareness of how discarded waste contributes to the breaking of icebergs, climate change and the creation of islands of plastic in the ocean.

Glaciers carry an unimaginable memory of the earth's history and when Špela finds herself eventually glued, sunk into it and the waste that it carries, I cannot help but wonder, what, if anything, are we leaving for posterity? And yet, despite this fleeting insight, man does not stop in front of the melted glacier; moreover, Špela's dress is completely transformed into plastic, inflated greed, which also changes her movement in this plastic landscape… The excellent original score by Drejc Pogačnik and Sašo Tepina perfectly replaces the words about climate change that have been heard countless times and have outgrown the regular debate on the issue of plastic waste. With a distinct sound image, they draw the dramaturgy of the performance, which could thus be divided into the story of the glacier, the story of a human being and finally... the story of the cloud.
