2071: Performance for Social Change
26 May –10 June
AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE STARRING JOHN GADEN
and featuring a cast of young performers from Australian Theatre For Young People
2071 is a performance about climate change, created from the words of prestigious scientist, Professor Chris Rapley. This beautiful production fuses the facts of climate change and our planets’ history of global warming with astounding 3D projections and an original music score. Theatre, science and art combine to imagine what the world might be like in the future.
First produced by London’s Royal Court Theatre in 2014, the production received critical acclaim and was an immediate success with performances in Germany, Brussels and two seasons in London.
2071 perfectly frames the climate change facts and challenges within a beautifully structured and eloquent dramatic monologue.
The Australian production will feature state of the art projections by Joe Crossley (Vivid Sydney) and an original musical score by award-winning composer Andrée Greenwell.
2071 is part of our Great Ideas series which engages with significant issues of our time, provoking thought and public discourse around big contemporary questions.
