Set in a dystopian future, earth finds itself slowing on its axis. One day now lasts weeks. Winter Rites examines the reasons for the slowing and the power of possibility.

 

Exploring consumerism, plastic and pollution, this newly devised performance will interrogate conspiracy theories and beliefs for how and why the earth slowed down. Examining the role of individuals, how we act as a society now and unpacking what it means to be human.

 

Winter Rites is devised by Sprung Advance, our experienced cohort of young performers, for this year’s environmentally-themed physical performance festival Changing Climates.  An original piece which will showcase and harness the energy, power and commitment of young people to tackle the climate emergency.

June 2021, Belgrade Theatre, Coventry

Headline performance at Changing Climates, a youth-led festival of environmentally-themed performance
