Quisquilia is a passionate love story told with comedy, objects and aliens.

Quisquilia [kwis kwi. li. a]
Latin for rubbish, odds-and-ends, dregs.
In some modern languages, it means that something is of no consequence.
It is also a type of shrimp.

Keep Your ‘lectric eye on me babe
Put your ray gun to my head
Press your space face close to mine, love
Freak out in a moonage dream, oh yeah!

(Taken from Moonage Daydream by David Bowie)

I believe alien life is quite common in the Universe, although
intelligent life is less so. Some say it has yet to appear on planet Earth.

(Taken from Life in the Universe by Professor Stephen Hawking)

We have made this show using Open Space technology, a Kanban board
and found objects. It is set in a hypothetical future. We hope you enjoy it.
