What – An hour long musical performed by and created for children (and adults) with the underlying theme of climate change. It’s a journey story of two brothers into an ecological dystopian future – which is a very real possibility. The show informs, entertains and asks questions about our current unsustainable practices.
When – September 2018
Where – The Sydney Fringe Festival 2018
Why – Because it’s 2018 and people are still debating whether there is ‘climate change’!! Because kids are the next generation – and they will inherit this mess.
This is a global awareness program*, in the ancient tradition of song and dance and theatre – to tell a moral tale, to raise awareness, to ask questions.
It’s fun, it’s dark, it’s real, it’s current and it’s important.
How you can help – any donations over $2 will generate a receipt by the ACF which you can use when filing your taxes – as a tax deductible contribution!!
So we urge you to take out that credit card and help us raise as much money as possible – and any money that is in surplus to the funds required to put up a dazzling show of lights and music – will be put directly towards the same program on a global scale*.
*The big picture –
After the shows in Sydney – the idea is to make the script and music available to students across the globe – to perform locally in their schools – in their native language – for free!!!
