Play readings curated by No Passport (USA) as part of a global call for playwrights writing about climate change. A series of short play readings and discussion.
Concurrent to the COP21 negotiations, Climate Change Theatre Action (No Passport, USA) have collected short plays from activists and artists across the world with something to say. Over the next two weeks their words will be read in theatres from Zimbabwe to Albeqerque. We would like to invite you to come and LISTEN, SPEAK, INTERJECT and dialogue with us as we hear these short plays in public spaces and theatres across Melbourne.
At each reading we will share updated information from the Paris conference, critically interrogate the provocations put forward by the playwrights in relation to our own narratives, question and discuss these plays position with regard to the role of art within the local and global community and weigh up some fancy facts and swags of stats.
This is a free event.
