Theatre and Climate Change. What can we do?

Kevin Lewis, 17 September 2012

Session called by Kevin
Unfortunately as it was the last session of the day only a few people turned up. The question was provoked by the front page news in the Guardian on Saturday read just before coming to Devoted and Disgruntled. The Arctic Ice cap is melting much quicker than expected. How as theatre makers do we respond to this?
Mention was made of the recent Emergence conference at Centre for Alternative Technology nr Aberystywth. Presumably there are or will be this reports about this on the Emergence website.
The three of us who were in this group felt a bit overwhelmed and lonely and scared and angry and sad so we made an instant sculpture with upturned chairs from our group circle , tore up the white paper with the question on and scattered the pieces around the chairs and impaled bits of the paper on the chair legs.
I'm still thinking on this question as I imagine are other people.


thinking, sculpture, climate change, theatre makers, respond
