Snik and Snok on the moon

The dance production Snik and Snok on the moon (2011) by Siljeholm/Christophersen is about the superheroes Snik and Snok, who are living the good life.

They are hailed by the people and enjoy their status as heroes. But one day, the idyll is broken; a tsunami of garbage threatens the world. The crook Skuggan, who is driving the moon towards the earth, is blamed, as Snik and Snok accept the challenge to save the earth. But is Skuggan really to blame for the pollution? Will Snik and Snok manage to save the planet from drowning in garbage? And do people really want to be saved?
