2Degrees is a night short of plays and talks examining the many faces of Climate Change.

Part of the international Climate Change Theatre Action festival, we’re bringing together artists, experts and activists to engage with the issues being discussed at the United Nations 2015 Paris Climate Change Conference (COP21)

2Degrees will include work by local and international playwrights and theatremakers, alongside talks by activists and policy experts and a performance by young theatre makers from New Horizon Youth Centre, a local day centre providing advice and support to young homeless people aged 16-21. The young people will perform alongside a bill of professional actors and world-renowned playwrights to present their response to the greatest challenge facing our planet.

ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE THEATRE ACTION
A joint venture between NoPassport, The Arctic Cycle and Theatre Without Borders, Climate Change Theatre Action aims to raise awareness of COP21, taking place in Paris. A collection of over 50 short plays was commissioned from writers across 6 continents and made available to collaborators across the world. Including work by Neil LaBute, Bryony Lavery, and Koffi Kwahule, these plays will be performed in over 90 events across November and December in 20 different countries across the world, raising awareness and fostering discussion around climate change during this critical time.
