‘Kop in ‘t Zand’ is a dance performance that addresses issues world crises of our times: the global warming and climate change and inspired by the children’s book ‘Ostrich Land’ by Ephraim Sidon (Israel, 2018).

‘Kop in ‘t Zand’ tells the story of the Ostrich community in a far out land where crises are being handled with ignorance. The image of the Ostrich is used in the performance as a metaphor for mankind choosing to bury their head in the sand for more than 50 years now since the first scientific reports about global warming.
