If you expect to achieve something in this world, you have to be there for the long haul… Join us for a night at the theatre full of rainforests and knitting nannas, climate action and arrests, hot pots full of curry and warm hearts full of hope.
Verbatim theatre, made with the greatest love, respect and gratitude to those who are fighting for our future. Written by multi award winning playwright, Fleur Kilpatrick, Rebel tells the story of senior activists from around Australia who are fighting for a future they may never see. These include environmentalists from Springbrook who got the government to protect cow paddocks as a “Rainforest in Recovery”, the head of The Grandparents of the Extinction Rebellion in WA and members of Knitting Nannas Against Gas and Greed from New South Wales.
Starring an ensemble of veteran Australian actors, this innovative digital-theatre hybrid is brought to life by one of the best young contemporary performance creative teams in Australia; Cassandra Fumi and Justin Gardam, with development supported by Monash Uni Student Theatre, and produced by one of Australia’s most trusted and exciting independent theatre companies, Lab Kelpie.
