About the Show
What happens when the unstoppable force of climate change meets the immovable object of Australian federal politics?
As Fleetwood Mac takes the stage at Canberra’s Parliament House, 96 armed eco-terrorists storm the building and take the whole crowd hostage, threatening to execute everyone unless Australia ends global warming. Tonight. Kill Climate Deniers asks the simple question: What would it take to actually stop climate change dead in its tracks?
First written as a play in 2014, Kill Climate Deniers attracted right-wing fury without even being produced. Taking on this second story, it’s evolved into an ebook, a film script, a walking tour of Parliament House and a dance party – and for the Festival of Live Art, a performance-lecture-cum-DJ-set, delivering the explosive, action-heavy journey into climate politics you’ve been waiting for!
