Taking place as a part of National Science Week, Creating a Climate for Change is the fourth compelling Q&A event in the 2016 series presented by Melbourne Playback Theatre Company.
WHEN:11th August at 7pm (finishes at 9.15)
WHERE: Northcote Town hall, 189 High St, Northcote (please note that parking can be scarce)
With three previous SELL OUT shows already this year, during International Women’s Day, National Reconciliation Week and Refugee Week, this one-off evening will explore climate solutions, action and what it means to live in a warming world. Creating a Climate for Change will look at how current climate solutions can change our lives and communities in positive ways.
The Q&A discussion will then be followed by an interactive performance with Melbourne Playback Theatre’s ensemble of professional actors, musicians, and MCs. Melbourne Playback offer unique, one-off theatre performances which are created from the audience’s thoughts and experiences. These are brought to life on stage by a skilled team of performers; improvisational actors and musicians.
Creating a Climate For Change offers an exclusive forum that intersects science, performance and conversation. Joining the discussion and speaking to the Melbourne Playback facilitator is completely voluntary – you can just sit back and watch. These events have proven to be funny, playful, poignant, and insightful.
“Playback theatre is certainly not your usual black box theatre experience, but if the standing ovation that MPTC received at the end of this provocative performance is anything to go by, it is an incredibly rewarding one.” – Theatrepeople (SticksnStones – May, 2016)
Proudly supported by the Darebin City Council’s Community Support Program.
