Bleached - (Preview show) presented by Wit Incorporated
WRITTEN BY LAURA COLLINS
DIRECTED BY RUBY REES
AN ABSURD AND REVOLUTIONARY NEW WORK SPECULATING ON A FUTURE RAVAGED BY A CLIMATE CATASTROPHE
“compelling and surprising theatre”
The world is in decay.
Colours are fading. The bees are buried. Countries are closing.
Bleached explores the impact of climate change set in a future where the world is locking down, environmental apocalypse is impending, and the human race disappearing.
In Collins’ absurd and poignant new work, Australian tourists crawl the globe, like "cockroaches”, consuming all it has to offer, before it is locked down forever; a last-ditch universal effort to fight the climate crisis.
And they will blame chickens...
